Description

Sorenson Point is the most prominent wall in the canyon. The trail to the top is one of my favorite hikes in the canyon. Rock quality on Sorenson is on par with the rest of the canyon, but there are many climbs to be had. There is lots of bouldering potential on the approach and the cliff band on the left side of Sorenson. Just last week there was chalk on at least two boulder problems. There are many cracks for bouldering and tr/trad on Sorenson.
Climbing Access Open - Keep a low profile. Details

Fun place that's in the shade until late afternoon. The trail is a little longer way as you have to go around the creek and cross over at some point. We found it shorter and quicker to hike close to the 1st water crossing and about 30 yards back from the road there's a water drainage trail off to the right that will lead you up to where you're on the correct side of creek and Sorenson in front of you. Don't know about the 7-15 min hike to get to the top, all the times I went its more like 45 min to an hour but I also have the family when we go. Sep 5, 2017
Just a note about the trail:

The well worn path will follow the road south (and not to the crag). The trail up to Sorenson Pt is a left turn off this trail a few yards from the trailhead/water crossing. This trail has plenty of cacti and disappears into a scramble as you approach the obvious climbs. May 26, 2016
