Description Suggest change

The north side routes are on the left side of the canyon when first entering after coming down the approach trail.

The north side routes tend to be steeper and more difficult than the south side. Many good, steep 5.10 and up exist here. Mostly good rock on the routes, but don't forget it is still Queen Creek and the occasional bit of loose stuff is standard.

  • This is the wall you rappel down if you choose to enter the area that way. You'll rappel right over Neptune , which is a very popular 5.10. Please be careful tossing ropes if the parking lot already has cars in it and climbers are likely down there. Consider walking down instead as a courtesy to anyone unseen, who may be leading it below.

Getting There Suggest change

Left side of the canyon when facing upstream after coming down the descent trail.
