looking at the shady side of black rocks

Closed March 15 through June 30 MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This northwest-facing canyon wall is in the shade the majority of the day, getting sun only in the afternoon. The harder routes (5.12 to 5.13) at Black Rocks are found on this side, although the majority of the lines are in the 5.10 range.

Getting There 

Follow the trail from the parking area. Upon descending into the canyon do not cross to the other side of the canyon.
