The more sunny of the two side-by-side canyons in this area. Features some larger, more exposed walls of pocketed limestone.
Drive the only road along the east side of Canyon Ferry, the turnoff is just across the street from the "Hellgate Campground" (on the east side of the road). Drive about 1 mile, to the obvious entrance to the canyon. Park here, so as not to block the road. From the parking area, it should be about a 5-minute walk to the first bolts.
Weather station 6.5 miles from here

Wow, this place looks fantastic. Multiple shark fin type limestone walls reminds me of a mini-Potrero Chico. You could put 100s of climbs in here. Was pretty just to go see.
