Description Suggest change

The Lower Left Wall has numerous very easy trad climbs that can be led or top roped. As such, it is quite popular with groups and beginner climbers. In mid-March this section of the canyon goes into the shade at about 11am.

As soon as you walk into the canyon from the road, this section will be directly across the bottom of the drainage from the approach trail. There is a stone wall that surrounds a raised platform on the far left (down-canyon) section of the wall. On the right (up-canyon) edge of the platform are some boulders.

Just to the left of the raised platform is a very easy scramble that provides access to the top of the cliff where you will find more than 20 sets of top rope anchors. Many of the anchors are connected to one another with a wire cable, making it quite safe to move from one anchor to the next. Many of the anchors will require long slings or a cordalette to rig a TR and avoid rope drag.
