Description

The next major canyon north of Mayfield Canyon. Three known routes exist in this section of the Wheeler Crest - Milkylala III 5.10 and the Leary-Phillips III 5.9 on The Rocketship, and Zen Amongst the Rubble III-IV 5.10+ on the Forgotten Tower.

Edit to add: a variation to Milkylala was put up in winter 2016, climbing cracks and corners to the left of that route and joining it near the top (Traub/Kalman)

Getting There

Drive as for the Mayfield Canyon/Grey Towers approach, but go straight rather than make the final turn left to MC. Drive as far as your rig can comfortably go and hike the rest of the dirt road towards the mouth of the canyon. Explore the best approach roads with a high clearance 4x4 rig and by using Google Earth.
