Climbing Access Open - Keep a low profile. MORE INFO >>>


Located next to the caves this cliff offers quality (for the canyon) rock and quite a lot of potential for new routes. The cliff is about 45ft at its tallest and is about 30ft on average. Though primarily a trad and TR area, there is some bouldering potential along the right side.

Getting There 

After driving down the big hill, continue down the road past the stables. As the road starts to turn left turn right into the parking lot for the caves. Hike up a broken trail to the base of the Horseshoe Cliff.
