BETA PHOTO: Hobbit Caves and Wall of Illness parking and appro...


Fantastic little wall with some very cool scenery around. The Hobbit Caves are very cool to explore and there is a nice little stream that runs through the area. If you are planning on climbing here, please bring a trash bag or two, because for some stupid reason, people feel that this is a perfect place to break beer bottles and leave other trash around.

Getting There 

Turn up Right Hand Fork Canyon and follow that road for about 1/2 mile. There is a turn out on the right side of the road (across the road from Wall of Illness) or there is a parking spot a little farther up. Cross the river on the little wooden bridge and follow the short trail down the canyon about 100 yards.
