Description

Part of Islands in the Sky the Dip Area is between the Doghouse and The War Zone - both south of Aftershock Wall.

Only a few worthy climbs exist here, all requiring gear. There are two well traveled 5.6's, including Under the Sleeping Giant and a good multi-pitch .10b called Famous Last Words. The rock quality is fair, but fragile in areas. Shady in the morning and sunny towards the afternoon.

Getting There

The best parking is just north of a major "dip" in the road, with a larger pullout to the west and a smaller one on the opposite side. Follow a distinct trail to the routes.

I believe the dip area is a bit further north than the Jenny's Canyon southern pull out. The best parking is just north of a major "dip" in the road, with a larger pullout to the west and a smaller one on the opposite side and just further north at 37.195955, -113.645479. The trail to the small arch on the face and the edge for Sleeping Under the Giants is obvious from there. Nov 8, 2014
