Description Suggest change

This is an excellent, sublime clearing within a collection of freestanding towers (Prickler Peak, the Monument) and next to a sizeable crag holding a collection of good routes (Crainial/Detox wall). Click on specific areas for more details.

This area also sports the 2nd class Emergency-Services entrance/exit to the canyon, is adjacent to the Helipad, and has a First Aid kit installed by the Beta Fund in 2017.

Getting There Suggest change

On the rim from the main falls, hike 5 minutes past the Dogwalk gully to find the 2nd class down to the freestanding Hidden peaks.
15 minutes total from the road.

Alternatively, a usually-wet 5 minutes past the Dogwalk on the canyon floor brings you past the less-often climbed Industry & Sheen walls to accomplish the same thing.
