The Side Walls Rock Climbing
These walls lie between the Lower Town Wall and the Inner Town Walls, mainly along the side of the canyon going up to the Inner Walls. The rock texture varies considerably, providing a lot of variety. Some areas are quite shady and cool, similar to the Inner Town Walls.
Start from the Lower Town Wall parking lot. Several of the walls are as close as the Lower Wall, while the furthest away, K-Cliff, is only about a 10-minute walk.
