A varied climbing experience on Dakota Sandstone. This crag doesn't see a lot of traffic and the routes can be a little dirty. There are sport routes, mixed routes, and some cracks. Most are one pitch in the 40-60ft range, somewhere around 30 climbs in total.
From the parking area, hike through the bouldering area to a large Ponderosa. From there, follow a trail that leads up the hill to the base of the right side of the cliff near Fringe Dweller
