Death Valley - Red Wall Canyon

We took a break from the mediocre ski conditions at home, and went for a few days of desert hiking in Death Valley. After a guided tour through Scotty's Castle (very interesting) we started with a hike at Red Wall Canyon. 2.3 miles from the road to the mouth of the canyon shown above.

It was maybe three-fourths of a mile to the first pourover. There was a fixed rope in place that seemed to be in decent condition. (Looked like it was also passable with some 5.4-ish climbing up the left side.) We turned around here anyway, so what lies beyond is still a mystery to us.
