I've lived in the valley over 30 years. My passion is Boulder climbing and creating ladder routes through Mecca's slot canyons. Hate sand slogging! I'll show you crazy cool places!

MECCA CANYON LADDERS

Explore the slot canyons in Mecca. There are many ways to navigate through and around the canyons and climb up ladders leading to amazing ridge vistas.

Gloves (gardening type) needed so hands don’t get hurt. Pants suggested for some boulder scrambling. Small brim hat like baseball cap is good. Small pack because of narrow spaces. If afraid of heights or claustrophobic, not a good one to attend.

Numbers very limited because of Covid. Must have 4 wheel drive car. We will meet at Just Java and follow each other to Mecca. 45 minute drive to area.

5 Miles with minimal Elevation gain
