Description

Shady side--best in the summer. Winter is waaay chilly.

There are several interesting looking dens down the cliff.  We have seen bear scat several times on the way to the cliff so keep your eyes peeled.  I also have this funny intuition, seeing all the deer parts lying around this spring, that there is at least one mountain lion in the immediate vicinity.  

Takes about 20-30 minutes to get to the cliff from the campground.

The routes to date here are on the long side.  Most need a 60m rope to get down from the top anchors.

Getting There

The Aspen Grade Wall is the tall cliff on the south side of Sinks Cnyn above the Sinks Canyon Cmpground, west of the Heavy Metal Rock Band.

Park @ Sinks Canyon Cmpground. Cross river, turn left and follow trail to Moose Gulch Trail. Follow this to Aspen Grade Trail and head up that trail. Just before some big aspens, a tiny cairn will be spotted on the left. Head up faint track and game trails to the west end of the cliff. The climbs at present (winter 2019) are at the west end of this cliff.
