Description 

South facing alcove with an East wall facing south-west, which makes a pleasant morning shade spot especially during the hot months. Alcove is elavated above the road with a great view of the Boise river. Quality routes in this area.


Getting There 

Take HWY 21 to the Sandy Point Beach turnoff below the Dam and turn around. Car Body Canyon (parking for east and west facing walls) is located 1 mile going back west from the turnoff. Parking area is evident on your right (Mile 9 post in medium marks the spot). Short approach trail, about 5 mins to either side of alcove.

Macabre Roof 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- E2 5b  ID : Black Cliffs : East Car Body Canyon
This climb features beautiful double hand cracks that eventually lead up to a roof, which is split in the middle by a crack. In Sandi Epeldi's book the roof is described as "a classic boulder problem in the sky", and I'd have to agree. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in ID

I found an Espeldi Guide at the base of the wall. You can find your missing guide book in a rock cairn beneath a shelf of rock at the base of the Macabre Roof route.
