Description

The southern end of the west face of Antelope Mountain holds untold potential for high quality limestone climbing. At the base of the same sub canyon that the Marjumhorn resides, you will find the old hermits cave. You will also find the most protected spot in the canyon to hide from those brutal west desert winds. The entrance to this canyon makes the most logical campground, and with that comes some route development that here we will call "The Campsite Area." There are maybe a dozen sport routes surrounding the camping area that are all in the 50 foot range, most easily top-rope-able. On the Lower West face proper, maybe a 5 minute walk up east of the campsite there are some routes that grant access to the upper west face.
This area has some major potential, with short approaches.

Getting There

This area is the last on the right hand (north) side as you drive west through Marjum canyon. Good camping and climbing right at the mouth of this northern sub-canyon.

This area really needs to be subdivided so that it makes more sense. I would propose having the following sub sections: Campsite East, Campsite West, Hermit Shack Wall, and Nobody's Darlings Wall. These are all seperate walls and it would be much easier to figure out where things are if it were subdivided. Oct 17, 2013
You have my vote. I think Hermit Canyon better suits the area. Jan 23, 2012

A better name for this area might be Hermit Canyon. Anybody agree? Jan 21, 2012
