Description 

The narrow cliff with a single pine on top, at the right (N) end of the South Canyon's east face (from about where the fence meets the face and north).

The "Left Side" is the face left of the main chimney/crack and has two long interesting routes.

The lower half of the "Main Wall" is steeper and cleaner and offers consistently good climbing on great rock. The upper half is not as consistent but offers a couple of full length pitches worth doing.

The far right end of the lower cliff is the low angled "Anarchy Wall" which has three easy climbs suitable for beginner leaders. They all share the same top anchor.

The stair-stepped wall that sits in the middle of the gully on the right (between the Upper West Side face and the SE Buttress), just right of the trail to the top ("Gully Wall") has several enjoyable climbs on each of its three tiers.

Getting There 

Follow the Main Canyon trail and cross the open space to the cliff base. It's a 20 minute walk from the south parking area (about a mile) to the base of the cliff. Approach the top by the gully on the right.
