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!!

Brian leading at the third bolt, very steep route for the grade but not to be missed.

Yarlsberg 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ E1 5a  AZ : Northern Arizona : ... : Swiss Wall
Very Good route that is consistent movement at the grade and well worth the visit. The only crux would be the funky start (1st move) and then just the steep jugs all the way to the top, don't flame out to soon!...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
