Description 

Only a few problems (I know of) at this area. The two best are Girkha Knife and Dark Continent. Both problems can be seen from the road and rest roughly 50 yards uphill from the road.


Getting There 

Park at the 8 mile marker and walk to the edge (down canyon or upriver) of the sandy parking strip. There is not really an established trail getting up there at this time.
