Description

North facing cliff up the South hillside of the hairpin turn canyon. The cliff is the South (left) side of a narrow (4-12' wide) canyon that can be seen from the hairpin turn parking pullout. Because the canyon is so narrow boulders have gotten wedged in the canyon and sand and rock have filled in the up canyon side of them creating several flat terraces to belay from.

All the hardware has been camouflaged to match to rock color.

Getting There

Park at the hairpin turn parking pullout. Cross the road. After passing a 2' wide metal drainage pipe and pile or jumbled rocks on the left side of the road head up hill via a smallish drainage. Just before reaching the cliffs exit the drainage to the right and follow the natural rock stairs up the right side of the canyon. You will be at the base of a 8' tall boulder blocking the way to the upper canyon. Scale the boulder and set down your gear on either the main terrace or up at the top of the canyon.
