Description

Calcite rich sandstone cliffs that have steep slab to vertical and overhanging routes.

The area is surrounded by a mixture of aspens and pines. It gets morning shade and late afternoon sunshine.

Climbable from spring to fall.

Getting There

Drive up Cedar Canyon Road 9.3 miles, park at the pull out on the left. The parking area is below the Adventure Climb area (also know as Rappel Area Wall). Go left around the corner of the wall. Follow trail up past a large obvious boulder. Cross the stream continue walking up the trail a few hundred yards. Look for a small trail heading to your left and down towards the stream. Cross the stream and walk up to the wall ahead. You will see the memorial cross that gives the area its name off to the left of the wall. The cross commemorates the site of a rappelling death in 1996.

It is a 5 minute approach.
