From fun, moderate single pitches to 15 pitch routes all the way to the summit, this is a great wall. Facing southeast, it's in the shade late in the day.
Even doing just the first four or five pitches of these longer routes is a worthwhile adventure.
Since the routes start very close to the road, many climbers hang their packs from the first or second bolts of the route to keep them safe, especially on weekends.
It's the big wall immediately behind the picnic pavilion on the right side of the canyon. Routes start in "the jungle" of relatively verdant growth at ground level.

We climbed with a single 60m rope and on the raps, we had the knot up against our belay devices multiple times. I recommend the 60m rope, a 70m would be an extra 10m * 14 * 2 = 280m of rope to manage. The rock is sharper the higher you go, until the 14th pitch...in shade and not as sharp.
