A box canyon with an old shoreline cap rock at the end. Few people visit this little spot though there are some archaeological interests as you walk up this short canyon. The sea rock itself is harder than the sandstone that makes the canyon. Climbing on old Sea Urchin pockets make this a bit fun.

Getting There 

Just north and across HW 12 from the Main Canyon Rd. which is only about 3 miles South of Escalante. Go in to the canyon and head up and left to the end(10 min.s).

Climbing Season
