Trail Overview

This high-elevation trail offers varied terrain and outstanding views. The trail begins with a descent to a narrow ledge overlooking Negro Bill Canyon, which then drops to a drainage. The climb up to the rim is rocky and worth it for the incredible views. There is a rocky ascent to the top of the rim.

Trail was tight with close proximity to cliff edge at time. There was a couple 3ft high rock ledges that had to be cleared that were very close to cliff edge. Much more difficult that Fins and Things we completed earlier in the day.

Trail is rough and gas several large drops if entering from the far side. Not beginner friendly. Stock equipment will struggle.

More difficult than fins and things, off camber rocky climbs. Had to stack rocks to get over quite a few obstacles, would not recommend for beginners.
