This is the area in the open area to the north of Box Canyon and while it does have a few worthy crags they tend not to have the huge volume of traffic of the more popular areas.

Popular crags here include White Face, Leaning Tower and The Cave.

Getting There 

Drive in about a mile from the paved road and when the main road forks and the valley opens up you have arrived. Some crags are accessed by staying straight ahead while others are reached by following the main road left; check the individual crag pages for more detailed approach information. Approach times here vary from 1-15 minutes from the closest parking area.
