Description

This small Canyon has a few fun routes worth giving a shot when the more popular areas are crowded. It is strictly trad. The rock does have some loose spots. The crack systems run more diagonal than not. 

"At last" 5.10a is the best of the lot. "Kinda Sorta" 5.9R is fun as well. Walk off to the east and then down a ramp system is safest and easiest. "Finally" 5.4 is decent for the begining leader. Small to medium pro for routes and anchors.

Getting There

When entering Indian Cove, pass the Group Campground turnoff, until you come to the fork in the road where Pixie Rock is, take a right and follow until you find Campsite #57.
