The Capulet side canyon sees a little more shade than the main canyon. None of the routes in the side canyon are more than 100 feet.

Many of these routes have only been climbed once. Expect loose rock and some dirt.

Getting There 

Head up the shoulder between the side canyon and the main canyon. Cut left into the side canyon about 70% of the way up.
