South facing and in the sun all day, this cliff is the home of the tallest routes in Jacks, at up to 90 feet! You will NOT find this area in the old guide book. (You will find this area in the latest guide) Though there is not a huge concentration of climbs here, it does make for a fun day in the winter time, when it would otherwise be cold in the shade. While the majority of the rock here is of good quality, be careful! Some of the rock in the mid section of the cliff tends to be somewhat crumbly. Of course, as with other climbs at Jacks, these climbs are all bolt protected with top anchors.

Getting There

Follow the directions as you are going to Jacks Canyon (highway 87 to mile marker 13.7). Once you hit the dirt road, past the gate, zero your odometer.

At about 0.3 miles you will come upon a large junction in the road where the road goes straight (to the main Jacks area) and right. Turn right here.

At 0.5 miles (0.2 miles after the turn), you will come upon a faint dirt road off to the right - take this. If you come upon a wooden corral fence/water collection tank, you have gone about 0.1 miles too far. You should not be driving by this at all, the road is before (and not the one beside the wooden fence).

This faint road (good tracks, grass overgrown in the center) will wind through desert, eventually getting to trees (where it becomes even more windy) for about 1.5 miles until it comes to a dead end. At this point you should have come about 2 miles from the entrance gate.

At the dead end, directly in front of you will will see a pile of tree branches, of course, stop here. The trail goes straight ahead at this point (north), and the routes are on the north side of the canyon.

Hey Darren. This area was not in the old guidebook, which was the current one at the time the area page was written. You are correct that it is in the newer edition, though. Maybe a page update is in order? Jan 25, 2017

All these routes were put up by Chris Thornley and Rich Ludwig in 1997 - 99. There are twice as many routes here than what is listed.
Last spring the main wall was home to a pair of red tailed hawks, who were not going to allow any rock climbers. Their nest was very near the anchors for Blood Chemistry Adjustment. Mar 24, 2018
