Seasonal Raptor Closures.


After making the U-turn at the dam this is the first canyon on the right. It is south facing with mostly moderate sport climbs. There is a small area to pull out and park on the shoulder of the highway.

Getting There 

After making the U-turn at Discovery Park it is .7 miles back towards Boise.

Awesome line in Scary Canyon established by Tedd Thompson and Pokey Amory. The lower half presents typical Black Cliffs tricky climbing on polished basalt and the technical crux of the route with slightly sporty bolt spacing (a stick is clip useful for the start). Milk an okay rest below the headwall and enjoy the spectacular finish on positive steep edges and pockets. This is one of the better sport routes in the canyon....[more]   Browse More Classics in Idaho
