Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionThe rock quality and routes in this canyon tend to be very good (especially on the north-facing side). This canyon gets midday and afternoon shade in the winter which is a nice respite from the sun when it gets hot. In the summertime, when the sun is higher in the sky, this canyon is still pleasant in the early mornings and evenings. As you walk up the canyon from the aqueduct, these areas on the left wall are listed in the order that you encounter them:
The Surf Board
Beyond Ripped Wall
Then as you descend the canyon from the top the areas on the opposite wall listed in order of encounter are:
La Segunda Plancha / The Second Flatiron
La Primera Plancha / The First Flatiron
As you reach the bottom of the canyon and are almost at the swimming pools, turn left and the Wonder Wall begins by the BBQ grills (you are now technically out of the Virgin Canyon on the north facing side of the North wall of Virgin Canyon).
