Description 

The areas that line the top of the canyon above the Lower Gorge and below all the tuff hold a few gems. These areas are usually only climbed by classes looking to set up top ropes but there are also some great leads to be had. The area consists of The Practice Area, The Northern Point, and The Student Wall

Getting There
