About The Pile:

This area sits next to the waterfall at the S-curve. Just go to the S-curve parking lot and walk up the hill. You'll see the short cliff right next to the creek. A great summertime climbing area. It stays in the shade and is cooled by the creek. Probably the shortest and easiest approach in the canyon. It holds several short crimpy route on good quartzite.
