Description

Amazing bouldering on perfect white porcelain Limestone. It was at this site in 1540, that Coronado and his band of conquistadors became the first Europeans to ever lay eyes on the largest canyon in the world. It took them four years to hike from Mexico city in search of the legendary 7 sacred cities of gold. Lead by Native Hopi Indians, they camped on the rim for four months trying to reach the river unsuccessfully.
