Description

This area is barely up Cedar Canyon. It is soft, slabby sandstone, which makes the area very exciting (and scary) to climb. This area is east facing and therefore gets the morning sun and the afternoon shade. Usually this place isn't too busy, maybe just a few adventurous locals in the evenings.
Communication is a little difficult because Highway 14 is only about 30' away.

Getting There

Drive up Cedar Canyon, you'll see it on the left in about 2 minutes. It's right across from a foot bridge. It's right off the road.

Little to no approach, however avoid windy days as you will be dealing with sand in all the wrong placed for the next week. Jun 18, 2018
