Summary

Day Canyon is a hidden gem and a welcome change to the crowds of Wall Street. The climbing is dispersed throughout the canyon and requires longer approaches but the beauty of the canyon is worth it.

Description

Dispersed climbing, mostly cracks and towers but also some sport routes (especially Pocket Rocket, just at the entrance of the canyon is worth mentioning). Climbing in Day Canyon is an adventure, finding the routes and the path is not always obvious. The views and the quiet canyon make up for that. The potential in day Canyon is huge, look out for new routes and enjoy!

Approach

Follow Potash Road until you hit milemarker 4. Continue for a few hundred meters until you see a double pull out on your left and the opening of the canyon on the right. Park there, cross the street and the rail road where the old rusty gate is and follow the trail through the bushes and into the wash. Follow the trail into the canyon. After a while, the vegetation becomes less dense and the main trail stays right (walking in).
