Description Suggest change

A bit of chossy red rock well-endowed with holds, increasing in angle left to right. The easiest climbs in the Powerhouse area.

Getting There Suggest change

From the parking lot, hike south to the mesa top. Go through the first slot canyon gully and walk along the east-facing bit of Sunshine Wall. From here a path wanders skier's left across the plateau; follow it until a right turn leads down a narrow gully and a short scramble. The path continues past Moonshine and then up around the corner to Powerhouse: follow it to the end of Powerhouse (obvious chossy chimney) and behold the red wall in front of you.
