Description Suggest change


Car Body Canyon is a south facing alcove hosting two near-parallel walls. East Car Body Canyon faces west, which makes it a pleasant morning shade spot, especially during the hot months. The alcove is elevated above the road with a great view of the Boise River. Quality routes in this area.

Getting There Suggest change

Take HWY 21 to the Sandy Point Beach turnoff below the Dam and turn around. Car Body Canyon (parking for east and west facing walls) is located 1 mile going back west from the turnoff. Parking area is evident on your right (Mile 9 post in medium marks the spot). Short approach trail, about 5 mins to either side of alcove.
