Please help keep this place clean. I have been picking up beer bottles, climbing tape and PET bottle tops from this site.

I will replace the webbing on the first pitch of the first right side climb sometime this weekend. Aug 6, 2010

Climbed right rib last week. Figured I'd give a little approach beta.

To get to this area, walk past the girlie man area, down the wash for a few hundred feet, up the climbers trail on the left, then look for a trail that takes you between towers 2 and 3. Take that trail down and around to the right as depicted in one of the pictures.

There were a good amount of bees, but they seemed fairly docile and I didn't see a hive anywhere. Mar 11, 2019
