Description

Even though it's a five minute walk from the scene at the Great Wall, you can pretty much count on having this shady (east facing, in the narrowest of the canyon, close to the river) wall to yourself. Possibly the most verdant crag in the Gorge, it's a nice place to hang out.

While certainly one of the less stacked areas, it does contain a few good pitches, particularly Megalomaniac, Smokey the Beer, Supergroveler (in spite of its memorably offputting name) and even the 2nd pitch of Nakin.

Getting There

Six of one whether to approach from Upper or Central Gorge. From the Dilithium Crystal walk up the road/trail, cross the river (stingy nettle alert) pass some industrial debris and when the road gets good again and is squeezed between the river and a cliff, you're in the narrows. Narrows West is on the other side of the river -- step down the wall and cross some beams to get there.
