Has anyone climbed at the Far Side? It is an area that is located near the promised land. I hear that it has longer routes on quartzite, similar to isolation. I heard there was a paper hand out with information on this area but it no longer exists. Just looking for information.

That may be the area farth down the canyon, which all the routes are pretty hard looking, 5.11 and up. Which there are like somewhere between 10 to 20 routes, including the 5.13ish cave route up above the canyon.

Good luck with finding info on that my friend. I've emailed everyone @ Prescott College and someone put me in touch with someone who said they'd get back to me with the fold-out. If you find it, shoot me a scanned copy. I'll bet the owner of the Granite Mt Outfitters in Prescott has it.
climb on!

I have the fold-out guide and will happily let anyone make a copy. The routes are mostly moderate 1-3 pitch trad. We took a lunch break while at PL and hiked down canyon to have a look. It's all there.
