Joe gives 'Atari' a burn


This is the rock-band that runs along the top of the right (east) side of the canyon. It features the ultra-classic 'Atari' v6 as one of the first problems on the rim as you enter the canyon.

Getting There 

Take the main trail up the hill into the canyon and keep your eyes out for the few trails that lead up to the rim on the right (east) side. The rim is visible from the main trail, easy to find.
