Excellent area to get away from the crowds on weekends. This wall is the furthest developed wall away from the mail trail and past the Cracker Jack Cliffs. Rock quality and routes are excellent with a lot of harder lines but 3 or 4 moderates that are worth the hike alone. The routes tend to be a bit longer than most Jacks Canyon routes as a bonus. This area gets shade in the mornings and late afternoons.

Getting There 

Take a left turn once you reach the bottom of the canyon from the campsites. Walk for about 20 minutes going past the Main Wall, Swiss Cheese Wall, Cracker Jack Cliffs and the route will be on the left side of the canyon; only about 5-10 minutes past Cracker Jack Cliffs

This is certainly one of the most fun climbs of the grade at Jacks. It starts with an excellent 5.11- section that moves into a featured flake where you can rest for as long as you want. The bolts fork above this, The High Life is the center line. Climb through the roof and finish on some 5.10 that feels pretty desperate if you're pumped....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
