Description 

The West End Wall is an intriguing spread of morphed columns, though only a handful of established pitches exist. From across canyon you can see a very conspicuous drainage/low spot in the top of the cliff. This low spot marks the top of Nyctophiliac.

This wall gets morning shade until midday during the summer months, an increased shade during the Fall season. 65 to 70 degree ambient temps will seem perfect.

Getting There 

From the camping area, hike west along canyon rim.

A Nyctophiliac is one who finds comfort in the night or darkness, and you are going need to make your peace with the striking black streak which defines the line if you're going to send.
