Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionThe North End is actually an old area little known to a large majority of Shelf goers (that is until the new Shelf guide came out.)Best visited in the spring and summer months for it goes in the shade early in the day. Full details of the area are to be had in the new Shelf Road rock guide.
Getting There2.2 miles past the Cactus Cliff pullout (as explained in the new guide).
Drive the dirt road until just before it crosses the creek, there are two pullouts. Walk back up the road about 30 yards (south) to just past the green gate and head up the trail passing a rock kiln shortly off the road. The split in the trail 1/3rd the way up takes you to Heaven (left/straight) or to Gallagher Buttress (right). 10 min hike.
