The Longest, most dramatic and varied routes in the area. Some of the most classic sport and traditionally protected routes in the region.

Getting There

The same cliffline as Sams, easily approached by a one mile drive south, and parking at the near end of a guard rail on the right hand(west) side. Look for yellow fiber optics sign at the edge of the treeline. Locate the trailhead here. Trend right at the seasonal waterfall. A 7 minute hike to Painted Warrior Wall.
