A smallish section of not quite vertical rock right next to the dam. It only has 3 routes, but provides a nice warmup for the day. All three routes share the same anchor so it only takes two parties to make it a crowd. Donít be surprised to find it taken.
After you pass over the dam and scramble down the hill into the wash, head right towards the dam. On your right you will find a severely over-hanging section of rock with several routes on it (Drifter Wall
). Little Cheops is between this rock and the dam. You can either continue walking next to the water and scramble up a small wall on your right, or you can cut through the belay area of Drifter Wall and go left through a small cave.

When I was there last week the water level was too high to skirt around Drifter Wall - used the cave. Little Cheops is a great wall for quickly knocking out a few climbs.
Screw the spiders, those holes make for really fun climbing!
