About Prison Camp Area:

Excellent small canyon. Plenty of really fun routes. See "Squeezing The Lemmon II" for more info and directions. Alcatraz wall is not listed in the guidebook. To get there, continue down the creek past the point where it makes a 90 degree left turn below the Cell Blocks. Continue downhill past several bolted routes on the left (40 to Life, Mr. Meanor, & Mug Shot). At the bottom of the hill look up and left to see the Alcatraz Wall.
