Description

The South West Area offers a beautiful clean wall that is overhanging by about fifteen degrees and is approximately thirty to forty foot tall. There are some other tall boulders or short top rope outcrops as well in this area.

Getting There

The approach is on very vague trails and for the first visit it’s recommended to come in from the south end. Walk down the main trail pass the Grand Corridor and continue for another two hundred feet, looking for an easy place to descend to the right. Continue to descend about half way to the river and start working your way back north. The beautiful clean wall is located adjacent to the Grand Corridor. At the left end of the wall there is a fixed rope allowing for a vertical escape up a ten foot corner. Follow the ramp up and left until you can turn right and a short bushwhack will bring you back to the start of the Grand Corridor.

John- I didn't see a fixed rope. Is the cliff in this photo I took in the right area? If so, where is the rope in relation to this wall? Apr 8, 2017
