Description Suggest change

Less developed and with fewer standout climbs to choose from than Box Canyon East makes this a less crowded and slightly quieter area despite it's close proximity to the other. The suberb Predator Wall sees the bulk of the traffic here and luckily the parking area and popular south face can be seen from the road which makes deciding where to visit an easy choice.

Popular crags here include Sunshine Face, Predator Wall, Arch Rocks and The Dude Ranch.

Getting There Suggest change

Drive in from the paved road passing the Entrance Area Crags and the Camp Host and continue ahead until even with the Roadside Crag and then head right (west) to join a road that heads south into another canyon that runs parallel to the main one with Raven Rocks etc.

  • The old road that leads to the south face of the Predator Wall has been closed off, and now you must park at the mouth of the canyon next to some large rocks that block off the old road.

The parking area you choose will depend upon the crag you are visiting so check the individual crag pages for more detailed parking information. Approach times vary from 5-15 minutes in this area typically.
