Description

The main coulee along which you drive when you enter. This area has some of the earliest climbing at Vantage, and some of the best summer climbing on the north-facing Zig Zag and Middle East walls. There's also plenty of entablature to be developed on the north side of the coulee.

Getting There

Drive in to the main parking lot on Vantage Road and hike in any direction.
