Description 

Up river from the Bridge area. Routes in this area are on the north rim. Fremont Canyon is much deeper at this spot and more imposing. Many of the areas best routes including "Wine and Roses" a 90 foot arching hand to finger crack with incredible position over the river.


Getting There 

take a left after the bridge, and drive .4 miles to the second left turn off (dirt but passable with a 2 wheel drive. Drive down the dirt road about 1/4 of a mile to an obvious camping/parking area. From here walk 100 yards to the canyon rim. Anchors on the rim for most of the climbs. orient yourself with plaques on some of the anchors.

It should be noted that this area is technically the West Canyon. Wine and Roses just happens to be smack in the middle of everything.
