Soaring wingate cliffs adorn either side of this impressive canyon. To bad there is a "no new fixed anchors" rule.

Getting There 

Drive south from the visitor center on the scenic drive 8 miles. The paved road ends and there is a nice pavilion on the right that I am sure some one would stop at a have a picnic. Continue past the pavilion on the dirt road for almost a half mile to reach the parking for Classic Handcrack.
