The first chunk of rock after you pass by the Shiprock, this area has a handful of enjoyable moderate climbs that is a great zone for shade starting in the early afternoon. The density of fun climbs in a single area make it popular. If you keep following the trail up and past the Shipwreck Wall you will make your way to Table Scraps Wall which has few nice moderate climbs as well.
Cross the main entrance bridge and walk by the Shiprock. Take the first trails that break up the hillside away from the river towards the base of the Shipwreck Wall. The climbs here are found up and around on the east face of the area which provides nice afternoon shade

Given Black Diamond’s reputation for strong and durable hard goods, we decided to give their 9.9mm rope a try as our go to gym rope. The rope is priced right and works great out of the box but early signs of wear in the gym make it hard to give it the nod as a preferred gym rope.
