Description

The first wall on your left when you enter the canyon. The wall was almost entirely the work of Kevin Calder and Marty Lewis. All the routes are excellent, with several spectacular lines such as 'Phenomena', 'Coven', and 'Flame Thrower' to name a few.

Getting There

After parking, walk up the road into the mouth of the canyon.

So densely packed with classic routes--glorious! Notorious BEG is to the left of Coven--they are out of order in the MP list. May 27, 2014

This is seriously the best 5.11/5.12 granite sport wall I've ever been to. There is also just enough 5.10s to get warmed up if you're focusing on 5.11.

If you climb those grades, you can stay busy for a solid week without even moving to the closely-adjacent walls in the canyon, as long as the weather is comfortable in the shade (e.g. summer or warmer fall days). Jul 24, 2017
