Description 

This lower elevation area can be a good choice when it's cold and windy in the main part of the Park. Although bouldering here has never been documented in any guidebook it's obvious that limited activity has been going on here for many years.

The rock tends to be of somewhat lesser quality in the Indian Cove Area but thankfully exceptions do exist in the campground area as well as further afield.

Getting There 

Check the various sub-areas for more detailed approach information.

SDS at a pinch and a sloper and work your way up the blunt arete using knobs and edges to finish up a crystal slab.
