Description

This northwest-facing canyon wall is in the shade the majority of the day, getting sun only in the afternoon. The harder routes (5.12 to 5.13) at Black Rocks are found on this side, although the majority of the lines are in the 5.10 range.

Getting There

Follow the trail from the parking area. Upon descending into the canyon do not cross to the other side of the canyon.

Does anyone know the routes just to the right of Flying off the handle? They both start in the chimney in looks like? I don't believe they are on here, and was curious if anyone had some information on them. Nov 16, 2017
