We climbed the easier portions (right side project areas 5 and 6) of this cliff yesterday, yes there are quite a few loose rocks; however, it was still a fun place to climb.

I am new at this and I bring my 8 year old son along (he is a better climber than me). This Dynomite crag is very easy to top-rope because the access trail from the parking lot leads right up to the bolts on the top and you don't have to put your life at risk just to set up the top rope like some other places I have tried.

The bolted area on the far right side (as you are facing the cliff) was easy enough for a beginner like me and my son to climb to the top. I had another more experienced adult friend come too.

Definitely loose rock so wear a helmet and people waiting below should keep back away from the cliff to avoid falling rock, but still worth trying if you live close by. Mar 15, 2015
Thanks to those who put in the effort to put routes up in Dry Canyon. Its the closest canyon to my house. However, if you dont have helmets dont go. Great lines, very poor rock. Jun 5, 2011

We climbed the project 1 today (we called it avalanche cuz rocks kept falling). We top roped it cuz we didn't know how the rating. The bottom we went just to the right of the bolt line and there's a small dyno which is pretty sweet. And then there are a few great holds and then the rest seems easier. I felt it was about a 5.11b/c or so. Ff anyone know the real rating, let us all know. The rock is loose, but after a few more people climb this, it will be good. The quality of rock didn't stop us from having a really fun time. May 1, 2010

There are more routes on the east side of the this crag. Two of which can be top roped. Great Shade in the afternoon. Some of the bolts are suspicious and the rock is very crumbly. Beware. Mar 20, 2009
