Description

Enchanted Alcove is a secluded nook nestled in the folds of the Boynton Canyon vortex. A meditative amphitheatre with one worthwhile crack climb.

West-facing, partially shaded by trees... pleasant most days of the year.

Getting There

Follow the main Boynton Canyon trail for about 15 minutes, passing below Grandpa Buttress (the obvious prow sticking out above the resort). The trail will soon pass alongside the set of slabs used to approach Watch Out Grandpa. Keep following the trail past these slabs for a few hundred yards until the next set of trailside slabs. (Note: If you find the trail making a hard turn to the left at the base of a dark red wall, you've gone too far. Backtrack a short ways to the slab turnoff). Scramble up these slabs onto the nose of a minor slickrock ridge (3rd class). When you get cliffed out (note: the corner should be visible through the trees from here), pick up a fairly well established trail that skirts the short cliffband a few hundred feet to the right and then ascends directly through the forest into the alcove. Total: 25 minutes
