West End Wall Rock Climbing
The West End Wall
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.
From the camping area, hike west along canyon rim.
