Great steep line, short lock off's on good edges lead to a big pocket and a big move to the finish jug!


This is in the area called 'The Saloon'. Before entering into the canyon itself there is a road that turns straight right, travel on this road for about 100 yds then it will split left on a slightly less obvious path. Follow that path up the gully towards the cliff, you will find a rope set up at he base of a slab to help you ascend the last 50 yrds into 'The Saloon'. The Saloon is a miniature cliff band with very steep boulder problems set up throughout. West Side Warrior is the farthest left route, it's right of the small cave and starts just below the large crack system. You will see ratings at the base of all the problems.


Boulder pads and some dedicated spotters.
