The closure area includes technical climbing routes known as Wreckage Wall, Twin Towers and other unnamed routes in the upper canyon. Technical climbing remains open in the lower end of the valley including Memorial Wall, Surf Tower, The Patio, Scale Wall and Horseshoe Canyon.
During this closure drone use is prohibited within 1/2 mile of the Cave Valley area.
This rock is named for Kirk Arens, a climber who once frequented the area, whose plaque once adorned the rock. The plaque has since been removed, but his legacy lives on.
The rock will be of a different type of limestone than many of the other cliffs, and somewhat resembles granite in feel. The climbing is primarily near vertical to vertical. Many of the easier routes are sustained, and make for excellent climbing once you've warmed up on the simpler routes of the scale wall across the way.
This wall sees shade in the afternoon, and is a great refuge from the blistering hot red rock of the scale wall.
