Description Suggest change

Shady through-out the year. This is an ideal morning summer crag as the sun doesn't touch the rock until late afternoon. Make sure to bring your warm clothes for fall, spring and winter, as the sun almost never hits the rock. Home to The Courthouse wall, one of the premier walls in the canyon and hosting some of the hardest routes. 

Getting There Suggest change

From Cheyenne Crossing, drive west about 2 miles on highway 85 to a dirt pull off on the left side of the road. Cross the small wooden bridge across the creek and follow the trail up to the wall. Trail is clearly marked.
