BETA PHOTO: Hiking access map for Le Petite Covette


Le Petite Covette is a well protected alcove with a huge sand dune that is blown in nearly to the top of the south wall. There is climbing on a west facing crag and ona a northwest facing crags. These crags offer excellent route and shade well past noon for hotter days.

Getting There 

There are a couple options from the west rim parking. From P1 parking hike past Eagle wall and up a sandy trail to gain the mesa. After a short hike, drop into Le Petite Covette (20 mins from P1 parking).

Or if you're at the All American Area, you can continue east past the South of the Border Area and hike another 5 minutes into the mouth of Le Petite Covette.
