Description 

Excellent Climbing in Jacks Canyon that is usually blocked from the wind and is North Facing so is an excellent option on Hot summer days to avoid the heat. Not too featured in the guidebook and somewhat secluded for Jacks Canyon but with some of the best climbs here with great rock and very fun routes!! Don't miss

Getting There 

Follow the trail down into Jacks Canyon from the camping area, take a left on the well featured trail, pass the main wall (overhanging) on the left, and as you start to bend around the canyon turning west, look for a trail going through some trees out left. Cross the wash and the "Swiss Cheese" wall will be obvious sitting in an alcove with trees for shade and with slightly taller cliffs for Jacks Canyon, look for the Cheese features up high!! Easy approach half way to the Cracker Jack Cliffs!!
