Description

Shady Side is on located on the south side of Sinks Canyon. As the name implies, this crag sees mostly shade all day long. It's a nice place for moderates in the summer. There's harder stuff too.

There are 3 main crags at Shady Side: The School, Porter's Prow, and Heavy Metal Rock Band.

The School is the easiest area and sees heavy traffic and is a great place to set up top ropes for kids.

Porter's Prow has a few 11's.

Heavy Metal Rock Band has a range of climb from 10's to 12's.

Getting There

Park at the Popo Agie campground. Take the swinging bridge across the river. After the bridge, take the trail straight ahead. Hike up the nature trail. At the next trail intersection, split left or right depending on which crag you wish to visit.

A little more detailed approach beta to the heavy medal rock band. Park at the Popo Agie campground and cross the swinging bridge. Follow the trail straight across up the little wooden steps. When it comes to a fork, go right (Left continues on the nature trail). Keep going and cross the cattle guard thing at the fence. Immediately turn left and follow the fence through the meadow. When you get to the trees, a faint trail will be visible and the gully goes up to porterprowl/heavy metal. Be prepared for a little bush whacking. Eventually you will get to a well maintained bike trail and it goes right to the left side of the heavy metal rock band. Worth checking out! Jun 5, 2017
