DescriptionTwo ares here.
Rowell Rd boulders-- Small cluster about 5 miles out on Rowell Rd from the village. 2wd accessible
Bright Angel Wash-- Bigger more spread out down a draw reminiscent of priest draw... but lacking quantity and quality... 4wd needed in winter.
Wouldn't be climbing here unless I lived at the canyon. Surprisingly nice limestone boulders with a variation of pockets, chicken head like fossilized sponges, and even some finger and hand cracks. I've developed enough now to call it an area.
Not a huge amount of climbs, but a handful of decent moderates and even some really hard projects to keep you occupied if you are a local.
Make sure and avoid climbing on or around rock art. There are some tempting lines that should not be done due to presence of cultural resources. There are still plenty of decent lines that are not on or near rock art. Just keep your eyes open.
Rock Art Details
Keep an eye out for rock Art anywhere you might be climbing in the Canyon. The boulders down Rowell Road in particular have a rock art under some of the limestone roofs.
