Description

The lower band of cliffs above the scree slope at the base of the large upper Mid West - North End wall. A fun spot with 16 routes (60-90' long) on better rock than it may appear at first. The top ledge can be accessed from either end via a 2nd class scramble. Watch out for the poison ivy amid the sumac on the approach slope to the north, and of course rattlers when it's hot.

Getting There

About a 20 minute approach hike from the parking turnout to the base. From the Main Canyon trail continue to the barbed wire fence in the South Canyon, cross this and head for the right edge of the large scree slope. The top ledge can be reached (class 2 scramble) from either end.
