This limestone wall is directly above the creek and faces north and slightly west. Gets late afternoon sun in the summer and no sun the other seasons. The rock quality is generally good but you will see some choss in most routes. Most of the climbing style is technical or awkward.

Getting There 

The first area with rock climbing right off the road when driving up South Willow canyon is the Lower Narrows. Best parking is right in front of the small cave on your right (you might be able to see the top of cave from your car, but you will see the taller headwall). Walk up the road about a hundred yards. This wall becomes quite obvious with its base in the creek.

Thanks James! That means a lot coming from you. The Narrows is a really tough place to climb, which is awesome. I've been adding and have more easier routes going up at Lower Narrows in order to have easier climbs in this zone. My friend Channing and I have also been replacing old hardware for stainless on our own budget, along with other aesthetic improvements. Thank you for being such an inspiration to us all !!
