Description

Box Canyon East is the most popular area at New Jack City with the greatest number of climbs and consequently the most traffic. A huge number of crags are accessed from this area and as is usual the further from the parking area you walk the greater the chance of seeing fewer climbers.

Popular crags here include Roadside Crag, Boy Scout Wall, Crossfire Crag, Raven Rocks, Hueco Wall, Sunnyside, Crucified Crag and Fantasy Island.

Getting There

Drive in from the paved road passing the Entrance Area Crags and the Camp Host and stay left as you enter the mouth of Box Canyon. 

Continue ahead about 0.5 miles to the road's terminus at a parking area below a small fenced off hillside which is the main parking area for the majority of crags in the area.

Looking out from Raven Rocks area across parking area to the west.

 The main parking area can fill up quickly on busy weekends but luckily more parking exists back along the access road if needed which only adds a few minutes of walking to the approach time.

Some of the crags at the mouth of Box Canyon have parking near them and should be indicated in the individual crag pages; check the individual crag pages for detailed approach information.

  •  Approach times here range from 1-20 minutes from the closest parking area.
