Description

South facing alcove with an East wall facing south-west, which makes a pleasant morning shade spot especially during the hot months. Alcove is elavated above the road with a great view of the Boise river. Quality routes in this area.

Getting There

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.
