Description 

The south wall of Falling Rock Canyon sees much less traffic, and the climbs are harder to find. The aspect of the cliff is north facing, so it is a good wall to climb on in the afternoon with shade offered. The climbing is mainly on bolted vertical limestone faces with small pockets. There are only a handful of routes to be done here.


Getting There 

Follow the directions to Falling Rock under the area description. Then park at the pulloff .7 miles after turning off highway 44. Follow an old dirt road east from the parking lot. Go straight at the first intersection, then continue up a small hill to the cliff crest. Head left on an obscure road following the cliff top. Eventually, you'll notice that you are running parallel to the North Canyon Wall, and descending slightly.

At this point, a faint trail heads right to a rock protrusion with a couple routes (Spermatose - 5.9, and up), and another trail continues straight to another protrusion with a few routes (Better a Has Been - 5.8 and up).
