Description Suggest change

Fantastic new area with LOTS of rock and still LOTS of new route potential. A good place to go if you want to climb a bunch of routes quickly. And still have plenty to come back for...

The rock is some of the best limestone in the canyon (granted, some is loose here and there). But what do you expect with limestone. We have worked really hard to make the routes clean and to build good trails and landings.

Please remember this area is brand new. Some dirt and loose rock is inevitable. Don't be afraid to brush the holds some yourself or fix the trail or landings if they need it. Lastly, remember to have fun! Many more routes are in the works...

Also I have to thank our un-official sponser Matt Monson who has sunk a lot of time and money in helping us with trails and route development. Thanks bud!

Getting There Suggest change

Hike up to the first footbridge and leave the trail as if you are going to the tap wall. But just as you leave the trail look left and spot a concrete gutter thing. Walk west on this and where it ends look right and you will see a tree on the left and a rock on the right. Go up between these and you are on the trail. The trail is still undergoing some work and therefore you might see some re-bar and/or tools here and there. PLEASE LEAVE ALONE!!! We are using all this to build the trail FOR YOU ALL. The trail will lead directly to the walls. There are trails and landings for ease of access throughout the entire ares. Please stay on these and don't wreck what has already been built.
