Description Suggest change

The Grocery Store Walls are among the most popular climbs in the canyon due to the short hike. Top roping access can be found at various places along the wall (depending on how easy of a climb you're comfortable with). Some locations are just North of the Banana Tower (4th class), or at the very North end of the wall to the right of Gorilla Milk (easier 4th class), or to the South are some 4th class access areas.
