Bowling Alley Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Blue Routes- West Terr A. 5.7 B. 5.6 C. 5.8 D. Why...
This area is barely up Cedar Canyon. It is soft, slabby sandstone, which makes the area very exciting (and scary) to climb. This area is east facing and therefore gets the morning sun and the afternoon shade. Usually this place isn't too busy, maybe just a few adventurous locals in the evenings.
