Description 

This often over looked area has a number of moderate problems, along with 2 medium grade climbs. The majority of the climbing is on small crimps and finger pockets, with the exception of the 3 climbs found on the lowest Bird Cage Boulder.

The area faces west and is a good place to finish a cold winters day as you struggle to catch the last rays of the dipping sun.


Getting There 

The area lies towards the top of the canyon up on the east rim, just passed the Pow Pow Area and before Strength in Numbers Area. From the Pow Pow Area, look up right and you'll see a cave like boulder which is The Bird Cage. The other boulders lie hidden a little higher up the slope.
