Description

This is the cliff section to the SE from the downclimb. With roughly 35 routes, this area offers numerous TR possibilities, and a wide diversity of climbing styles, from difficult thin slabs, to 5.13 cracks, to wild overhangs.

This cliff faces slightly more west than the other crags along the mesa, and so, stays in the shade a bit longer.

Getting There

From the downclimb, head SE, or left. Some routes are approached from rappel from the mesa rim. For these routes, skip the downclimb and head SE along the rim trail.
