Description

Guide Wall includes a South-facing area (Sunshine Wall) and East-facing area (Ninja Wall), which get varied sun due to orographic features of the canyon. Ample sport climbs up to 90', with may interspersed mixed and trad lines along the extremities of Guide Wall.

Getting There

Follow directions to Long Branch Wall parking area to locate a few parking spaces straddling a dry creek bed. The trailhead is just north (less than 10 yards) of parking, immediately to the right of the creek bed. Follow a diffuse trail with a few switchbacks for 10 minutes up to the crag base.
