Description

This is the very attractive brown wall with several excellent crack and face lines. Hidden from view until almost at the base, this is a crag well worth seeking out. Despite many of the climbs receiving multiple stars in various guidebooks, this is still a place where you won't see many people.

Getting There

Hike up the main wash from the northern parking area and make a left up the second gully on the left at some giant boulders (the Poppie Field Boulders). Wander up a trail along the right edge of the boulders and continue upward until leveling out into a flat valley. Emerald City is the attractive west-facing wall on the hillside to your left. The approach takes about 45 minutes.
