This is the slabby north-facing wall that overlooks the western loop of the paved Indian Cove road. The wall has a number of easy/moderate routes on decent rock and with it's minimal approach it should appeal to those looking to quickly tick a few routes. There has been climbing going on here since the 1970's as evidenced by some old bolts (since replaced) but this wall has never been in any guidebook. Nature Walk (5.8) and Slab Rats (5.8) are two of the better climbs to do here and thusly recommended.
Drive the paved road west past Moosedog Tower until it ends in a loop. Look southeast and you will see an slabby northwest-facing wall that sits slightly above the desert floor - this is the crag. The approach takes less than five minutes.
