Description

This is the often shady portion of Cap Rock that is visible from the road as you approach it from the north (Hidden Valley Campground) or the east from the vicinity of Ryan Campground.

A good choice on warm days due to it's orientation this wall is home to a number of easier cracks as well as some spicy face routes in the 5.10-5.11 range. Note that this face is quite popular with guide services for it's easy crack systems and often tied up with a multitude of ropes - fortunately it's easy to spot this from the paved road.

Getting There

Walk around Cap Rock heading right for the North and Northeast faces or alternately head left to reach the North face more directly.
