Sport lines between 45 and 130 feet on rhyolite. The names of some of the routes are unknown but some more recent routes are known. Rock quality is generally good and will continue to improve as climbing continues. A great winter crag since at about 9:30 the sun hits and warms up the rock quite fast. Easily accessed from the Atlantis parking area.

Getting There 

Park in the same area as for Atlantis then turn toward the tunnel and look to the left, you will see the old highway road that comes through an old tunnel. The routes are between 3 to 5 minutes from your car on the old road!
