Description: A good crag with many routes. Can toprope from trees, but be sure to bring extra webbing or a static line. A good all day area.

Get There: Hike down river trail, which is marked in light blue, till the end. The trail ends here and circles back to the climber parking lot. Hike down a short trail to a slick ledge where most of the climbs start (including Lost Arrow).
