Despite the popularity of the nearby and sometimes crowded Rubicon this wall sees little action. Although fairly large it only has a handful of routes with For Peter (5.11c) being the best of the bunch.

Getting There 

From the Split Rock parking area follow a climber's trail southwest past the turnoff for Grand Canyon proper and take a left at the next wash to reach the formation which is located across from Rubicon.

Climbing Season

This is an exciting and varied route, with interesting problem solving. The crux is a shallow flared hand crack. It is not in the 1992 Vogel guide. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
