Description

A great shady bouldering wall up above the John Dunn Bridge area. Stays pretty nice and cool all summer, especially for being in the gorge. Solid basalt wall ranging from 10 - 20ft tall, lots of good easy routes to play on, one exceptional, classic V6 arete and more unsent highball projects. Named for contemporary rock art in the area.

Getting There

As the road first enters down into the gorge on your way to John Dunn Bridge, after the first hill, there is a large parking area on the south side of the road. Park here and head west about 50 feet. Where the flat parking area seems to end look uphill to the south and follow cairns a couple of minute walk to a short, shady cliff band. Good warm ups are right at the start, but head west along the cliffs for more climbing. It is located roughly across the canyon, to the south east, from solar asylum.
