Kind of a hybrid crag, combining Wild Iris style butress climbing on wind exposed faces, but more like the Sinks Canyon main wall in terms of height. There are more crimps here than at the Iris, and more pockets than at Sinks, but the rock is better quality dolomite than Sinks. There are about 40 routes here, described in both Bechtel's and Collins'/White's guides.
