Description

The West Side is accessed by a short trail that cuts off to the right from the main Beacon Rock hikers summit trail.  Look for a faint path to the right about 30 feet after the "Weed Seed" foot brush station and the very minor railing and bridge.  If you hike up the rock, you've gone too far.  Hike down to the base of the west side.  

Watch out for poison oak, scorpions and falling rock!  

Getting There

Follow the trail from the parking lot towards the main cliff trail. The trail for the West Face cuts of to the right just before the switchbacks to the gate.  Look for cairns as you enter the boulder field.  An upper and lower climber trail cuts directly to the base of the new routes where crude belay platforms have been constructed.  
Lower down on the West Side, Labyrinth (5.8R), can be climbed to access the "Upper West Side" climbs such as Hard Times, Rip City and Lay Lady Lay.  However, the upper dihedrals are plagued with poison oak.
