The Bug Barn Dance Wall is one of the excellent, moderate limestone crags in the canyon. It holds close to a dozen routes all between 5.9 and 5.11.

The approach is easy, unlike some of the limestone crags in Rock Canyon, and the walk up is a nice hike. Once at the base, you will pass some chossy rock before arriving at the main face, a south- and west-facing affair with a complex roof system in the middle.

Most routes climb on good edges, all are bolted, and eight to ten draws will suffice for everything on the wall. Overall: an excellent crag composed of good, solid limestone, and well-protected throughout.

Getting There 

BBDW sits about a mile up from the Rock Canyon parking, 100 yds past the water fountain on the right, and on the north side of the canyon. The crag just about reaches the stream and lies opposite the Bosko Wall.

Good limestone wall with lots of moderate climbs. The concensus was that most of the routes where harder then what they where rated as in the guidebook. Lots of crimpy stuff. I don't usually like slab, but the rock here is super great for smearing. Best to do in colder temperatures or in the morning, cause the rock heats up quick in the afternoon sun.

This is my favorite wall in the canyon. Flat and shaded belay areas, great rock, all exciting climbs, and I have rarely run into other groups at this wall. Definitely worth spending a few mornings here.

I'm curious... How did this crag get its name? Does anyone know?
