Description

Some of the best stone around. Nuttall style horizontals and cracks galore. The cliff faces mostly west and is a fairly easy approach. The wall gets afternoon sun in the warmer months. As with most areas, there is still quite a bit of trash in the area. If you see it, pile it up if you can't carry it out.

Getting There

Park at the Tower Tunnel Overlook. Hike down the hill and follow Prospectors Trail right. You will pass through the cave boulder and another wall with several crack features. There will be a clearing for the Clinchfield Gully. Just after this clearing another wall will appear, keep walking and look up for the twin cracks on Breaking Bad route. Hike up below Breaking Bad where the wall is closest to the trail.
