Description

A pretty decent cliff at the top of Sinks Canyon. It is quite sheltered and is a good option on windy days. Routes are mostly gently overhanging and on good quality granite. Almost all are sport routes- twelve quickdraws will get you by.

Getting There

Drive to the Bruce's Bridge parking area at the top of Sinks. Take the Popo Agie Falls trail for about a quarter of a mile. A faint trail winds up to the cliff through some talus. Snow shoes may be needed in the early Spring. Note- this wall is up canyon from the Joint Wall and can be seen from the parking lot. It appears directly below the Granite Buttress as you are looking up.
