About Black Velvet Wall:

Description: Located in the back of the canyon, Black Velvet looms over the area, doing its best to intimidate climbers who attempt to scale its walls. This wall has perhaps the highest concentration of top quality multipitch routes in the area.

Approach: Follow the trail into the canyon for a little while. Soon, the trail will make a left heading up to the base of Whiskey Peak. It is here where you want to continue straight and drop into the drainage. Follow the drainage toward the wall, and before you reach the falls, a climbers trail will appear on the left heading up to the base. The trail will take you directly to the base of Price of Darkness. Head left for Refried Brains, or right for everything else.
