Description

Protected from the wind in a small canyon and surrounded by pristine Ponderosas that shade multiple campgrounds along with many of the boulders throughout the day. With boulders lining both sides of the canyon it makes for all day climbing if your skin can handle the fresh virgin boulders. Climbing heights range from a few feet to ankle busting high balls. The rock is new so holds break often. Multiple crashpads highly recomended. Most landing zones are flat, however, some have steep hillside landings. Spotters, be on your toes.

Getting There

From where the road turns to dirt at the Pond you go 5.2 miles staying to the left as you pass a couple forks in the road, the turn off is an easily accessable off road trail to the left heading up a wash.
