Description 

The Big Overhang wall offers the longest and hardest routes in the park. There is a ramp dividing the overhang from the main canyon that provides an easy class 5 scramble to/from the parking lot. This area does not see many climbers.

Getting There 

Follow the trail from the parking lot down the stairs and stay to your left. Continue following the wall on your left through the main canyon. Squeeze through the slot at the end and the Big Overhang wall is on your left.

Climb up 10 feet to the small ledge that angles up and left, ending at a nice deep positive pocket. Now for the crux moves thru the next slightly over-hanging section, reach up right to a positive four-fingertip side-pull, then a long reach straight up to a large ledge hold.
