Description Suggest change

The Iron Wall is a haven of good stone and carefully hung columns in the middle of the South Side of the canyon. Though this intimidating wall hosts several hard test pieces, it has also become a great warm up sector with a number of good 5.10s in close proximity to each other.

Getting There Suggest change

From the main camping area, just east of the Hobel Memorial by 100 feet is a cluster of good sized ponderosas next to the rim. One cedar sits atop the rim, with a route on either side.
