Sorry, weather is currently unavailable.

Description [Edit]

Nice granite, just not as well travelled as the closer walls.
Lots of great sport routes, most in the 40-60ft range.

The approach is a little more sketchy than the other walls, just watch your step when hiking in and out and while belaying.

Getting There [Edit]

Follow the trail down the stairs past "The Great Controversy" and bear right on to the wagon trail, following it for quite a while until you see a blue sign to the left (bolted to a rock on the ground) that says "Upper Fifth" follow the trail down to the canyon.
