Description 

This area is on the North side of the Gorge and the farthest downstream that has been developed. The bottom of the cliff is shady with the top usually in the sun. many climbs are here, Trad, sport, mixed and many very easy bolted climbs like you won't find anywhere else in the New. The worst crag at the New, due to the over-bolting and mostly chossy rock.

Getting There 

From 19 Take Ames Heights road west there are a few different parking areas, two main ones, but they aare both about 1-2 miles from 19.
