A satellite area of Black Rocks, this remote region holds about six sport routes ranging from .9 to .12b While the climbing at Shady Side West is no different from the other two areas, this seclusion makes you feel like you're somewhere entirely different. Basalt face climbing up a small selection of short walls.
Approach the same as for the Shady Side. Follow the trail along the base of the Shady Side's routes until you reach the last remaining lines. Continue past these following a faint trail for about 250 yards. Once you reach a large open gap in the wall continue to follow the trail west until the rock on your left starts growing in size. When the wall begins to reach around 40 feet you're almost there. Keep a close eye for bolts. Expect a 15 to 20 minute approach.
