Description

Ches Upham hoping to find gear soon on the FA of the 5.8 R/X "Seam"

Some of the hardest, dark sandstone around. Excellent gear and some weird, cool features. All routes start down under the cool, dark canopy of the narrower section of the canyon (meaning it's a good spot on a warm day if you hike up early). Mind the oak and be prepared for a little bit of gardening.

Most of the routes on Wall 5

Watch out for tarantulas in some of the cracks (seriously). If the winds pick up, you may want to head down the canyon: the large, loose blocks on the left side of Wall 4 continue to fall and impact the middle and right routes here.

Getting There

Wall 5 is about 500' up the canyon from the left end of Wall 3 (or just under 1/4 mile from the start of the canyon).
