ACCESS

Please don't access the Foyer from above. Instead follow the trail along the rim until you reach the switchbacks. Signs should be visible to help guide you.

Description

This is the host to many of Natural Bridge's easier climbs and a great place to get a feel for the area. The right side(West) contains easier climbs from 5.6-5.9 with the Left side(East) containing harder stuff from 5.10-5.12b. A great place to come and warm your muscles up for the warfare routes that are located below.

Getting There

Walk out on the path across the large bridge. Ponder what would happen if you were to fall in the frothing suckhole below. Follow this trail on the rim of the canyon continuing around until some little switchbacks. Stay left at this point staying closer to the canyon. Do not go down into the heart of the canyon quite yet but continue until you reach a small slot canyon that leads downwards. Follow this down a small scrambly canyon staying left until you reach a corridor with a large boulder chockstone at the far end.
