Closed.

Description 

A very consistant mixed pro climb. It is long and requires the whole array of climbing techniques (layback, jams, mantling, undercling, ect.) So much fun, it's too bad that atthis time the area remains closed after over 5 years of discussion over the future of the park. There are talks about the possible transfer ofthe park to DNS, however, it looks as if the potential owners are no more favorable to climbers than the previous.The best thing to do is to refrain from using the area for climbing. We do not want to jeopardize our meek chances and send a wrong signal to the powers to be.

Miss climbing there. Hiked it a few years back overgrown trails now that no climbers are allowed someone could fall off and lay there until someone wonders why the buzzards are circling.
