Kristen Moon on Chimney in The Grotto.


This is a great area to head to in the heat of the day. It is located down near the water and almost always receives shade. There is also a cave/chimney that cool air is usually blowing out of.

Getting There 

From the parking lot start on the trail towards Post Wall. Just before going down the hill near the river turn right and cut back towards the dam on a trail. The trail will switchback down to the water. The wall is down near the water.

This climb starts deep inside the chimney. It is always cool in here! The rock is a bit more polished than other areas of the park. It gets a little tight as you go up! Shares anchors with "Chimney" route....[more]   Browse More Classics in Idaho
