  • Description 

    A rather large "canyon" near the southern end of the GCC. The wall is sheer at the bottom (250-400'), with the upper cliff's being broken up by several ledges. The wall requires 3 pitches down low, followed by, either a rap off, or 2-3 easier pitches to get to the top of the "canyon". If you don't mind doing some fun "mountaineering style" climbing up high, this is one of the tallest walls in the gorge.
