What an area!!! I saw at least 6 bolted lines here... This area has some serious potential. Yea, the area is a little dirty, but if more people would go it would be stellar. they weren't kidding when they said to be careful. The trail is actually marked blue on the path. As well, there's bolts all over the place if your into canyoneering, from local guides. All the bolts are bomber. Well worth the 2 hour drive I took to get there. Beautiful cold mountain spring water, falls everywhere. A literal hidden paradise. What a treat for very little effort.

This thing is filthy due to erosion caused by the overlook approach trail. If water bars were installed up top to prevent erosion, it might be less sandy.
