Description

A really fun area with a good collection of moderates, a few hard climbs and a few trad climbs. The canyon here is a bit wider than the lower area and a fun place to hang out. Again most of the rock here is really bomber but still has some small suspect nubs and flakes so be aware. All anchors can be accessed on the rim, making TRing easy. Most first bolts are high and a stick clip might be a good idea.

Getting There

From the parking area there are two options, you can follow the wash up past the "Bad Ethics" are and over a chock-stone. After the chock-stone the walls of the canyon are short enough to boulder on. continue upstream until the obvious climbing area is reached. Or you can walk the rim of the canyon a few hundred yards to and do an easy 4th class down climb into the canyon.
