Access Issue: Fragile Sandstone: Don't Climb Wet Rock Details
Kelly Canyon is a sandstone climbing area and the rock is very fragile when wet. Be aware of recent weather and ask a local if you are unsure of conditions. Do not climb for at least a day following rainfall. Do not climb on rock that is visibly moist or seeping.
From the jug rail around chest height, climb to the sidepull flake in the roof. With confidence, pass the big sloping block above and stick the good holds at the lip. Top out easily, high above the river cobble landing. Amazing movement, perfect features, plenty of air - one of Flagstaff's best.
Right across from Donkey Punch, look for the big steep problem with chalk all over it. Pretty much impossible to miss.
