The Flying Saucer Alcove looking West.


The Blood Simple Area hosts a number of boulders scattered along the eastern rim of the canyon upslope from the Wavy Gravy Area.

Often forgotten the problems here are well worth searching for. Classic rock often with little or no one around - hard to believe.

Getting There 

Walk up the canyon until the Wavy Gravy Area. From here turn right and head up towards the rim.
