BETA PHOTO: Chinese Eyes on The Great Wall

Description 

This is a big wall that is off to the left just past the Courthouse Wash Bridge. The wall looks really smooth but has a series of three blocks leaning against it at one point - this is Chinese Eyes.

Getting There 

Park at the pullout on the left immediately past the Courthouse Wash Bridge. Find a climbers trail/wash that heads NW towards big blocks leaning against the wall. About 5 minutes hiking time.

Approach BETA*****

To approach these climbs park near the bridge that crosses Courthouse Wash.

Hike up Courthouse Wash until you reach the prominent buttress which hosts climbs like "Chinese Eyes". Cut right at/near the base of the wall and the climbs are obvious.

Do NOT tromp through the "field" of crypto from one of the pullouts after crossing Courthouse Wash. There is no established trail and the washes are sparse and scattered. Much easier to simply hike up CW.

Cheers.
