Description 

Deep beautiful sandstone canyon. Only area in Horse Pens that is and adventure to get to. Not visited by most so it is pretty secluded with lots of shade.

Getting There 

Start by finding a way behind "Lay It Down." This area is not visited by most so if you are not familiar with it then you're probably at a good start. Walk down to the stream and follow it down to obvious canyon on the right.

Climbing Season

For the Horse Pens 40 area.

Weather station 6.4 miles from here

Stand start on nice rail right of arete then reach to distinct edge, work side pull to pockets. Make a sketchy reach back to massive jug on top of the roof. Topping out is the crux. There is a small hold above and behind the roof if you can find it....[more]   Browse More Classics in Alabama
