Description

This area is home to a large number of routes from the 5.6 to 5.11b range. A large number of these routes are 2-5 pitches in length. A single 60M rope can be used to descend most routes. The multipitch routes start on the second tier, which is gained by the obvious gully (4th class) just to the left of the Indian Wall.

Here are a few of the best climbs: Clairvoyance 5.11b, Stepping Out 5.9, Leopard Skin 5.7.

Getting There

This area is directly across from the handicap parking pullout for the sand dunes. Park in the large parking lot (with bathrooms) and hike south on the road for 200ft until you are directly across from the gully.

Approach Beta from Bob Pringle:
The excellent and often used Todd Goss climbing guide book directs parties to take the paved bike path to access this climbing area from the large west canyon parking lot. Many visiting climbers are getting confused and have been found wandering about in the Enclosure area. The advice in the book of walking south 100 yards before turning east across a wash to the access the scree slope/gulley is correct but the pavement to walk along is the main road, not the bike path.
