About Mud Spring Canyon:

Mud Springs, like Windy Canyon, has many long, excellent routes. Unfortunately, the approach sucks. A detailed map is needed for the approach to this thing, and you'd do well for a recon mission before the actual climb.

Access: Mud Spring Canyon is accessed from the Black Velvet parking area or the Windy Canyon parking area.

When to climb: Due to the nature of the approach, fall or spring when the temps are reasonable and the days arent completely short are probably your best bet.

Classics: Chuckawalla is the route of choice in this canyon, and also happens to have the longest approach. Fun.

Nearest town or city: Red Rocks
Directions: Approach as for Windy Canyon, but head down the road a ways to a different parking area. You can also park in the Black Velvet parking lot and walk in from there.
