These climbs are located on the lowest tier of the Harrison Bluffs directly adjacent to the point at which the trail from the powerline road reaches the crag. The climbs tend to be single pitch vcrack and arete routes although there are a few slabs and two pitch climbs. Can be damp in early spring.

Getting There 

The shortest approach of any of the areas at Harrison Bluffs. One minute from the powerline.
