hike to The Wave, but instead of entering the formation, stay in the wash and hike to your right until it narrows. After it widens back up, climb up the slab on your left to get to the Second Wave.
day use permit is required to enter North Coyote Buttes and is very difficult to obtain.
most people come into North Coyote Buttes to see "The Wave", but there is so much more. The "Second Wave" is around a quarter mile southeast of "The Wave" and is impressive in its own effect.
