Getting There

Hike west from the north end of The Canyon. Just west of Corvus Chimney veer right and down a short slab and follow the slope downhill to the west. Continue down the slope and over boulders until level with the south end of the Panhandle. Contour right, parallel with the base of the Panhandle, until the boulders of Nude Beach appear ahead to the left.
BEWARE OF THE POISON OAK THAT THRIVES IN THIS AREA!!!!!!!

As Spider has indicated this area is rather brushy and has not seen much exploration, but this may be due largely to the healthy groves of poison oak that enjoy the moist, shaded recesses around the boulders in the gully. This area is secluded and off the beaten path, but if you choose to go nude you'd best have lots of hydrocortisone cream, strong steroid medication (Prednisone), or be immune to poison oak. Also, be cautious of hyperextending a knee or tweaking an ankle in one of the plethora of gopher/ground squirrel holes that honeycomb the slopes of the approach. BEWARE, a good friend had a very painful and intense encounter with POISON OAK after a visit here. Dec 28, 2012
At this writing the area needs to be explored and developed. There are some nice looking moderate boulders down the gully including one large one that looks fun. The area is rather brushy so may require some gardening to access routes. If you like to explore, head down there and check it out.

I named this secluded area Nude Beach because if there ever were an area where nudist climbers would go, this would be it. I've met a few over the years. I don't care for the practice myself. Nov 8, 2012
