Walk just past the The Hidden. Turn around, and look up and back left a bit and you will see one of the best cliffs in the whole canyon!

The wall faces east and is shady most of the day. Be ready with your best skin as most of the routes here are crimp-feasts! Every route is pretty darn awesome!

Getting There 

Head up a hard-to-see gully just past the [[105739774]. You will eventually be led to the crumbly wall on top of which The Balcony sits.

There is a 5.9-ish approach pitch. The approach pitch takes you up to the slopey ledge at the base of The Balcony.

I'm pretty sure the second project mentioned is a 13b if you go to the very top.

Learning to fly is easy to find and extremely fun! Has a soloing anchor and small 11 D scratched into rock.
