Description [Suggest Change]

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 [Suggest Change]

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
