The Fringe Walls are actually a collection of four different walls. There is a good amount of history associated with these areas, as many early Indian Creek routes were done here. The Fringe Walls don't usually get a lot of traffic and are a nice change of pace, definitely worth the visit. From right to left the walls included in the Fringe area are...Scorpion Corner, Fringe of Death Canyon, Cactus Flower Buttress (Fringe Wall), and Fringe of Life Canyon. These walls have been grouped together due to their close proximity to one another. See the individual descriptions for exact route locations.
The Fringe Walls are located on the east side of the road just a little north of Battle of the Bulge and shortly before Scarface. There are several different pullouts/parking areas that are used to access the walls.
