|Thanks for putting this up with directions! I remember hearing about it quite a few years back and never looked into it. Sounds really cool! Any potential for new routes besides these three on all the rest of that rock?|

This place is super cool, but it is very hard to find the anchors. It took my partner and I more than four hours to find the rap in anchors, and we were very insecure attempting to downclimb to the ledge when we were unsure of the beta. The 70 meter rope is a must to reach the ledge rap anchors. It barely gets you there.
I only did the classic line with my partner (Midnight Express), but it was really nice. We also toproped the 2nd pitch of the 10b next to it which was quite enjoyable also. A bit of a scramble to get down to the anchors.
Some of the best, hard limestone around. Dark gray, pockety, and it would definitely hold gear. I hope somebody nearby gets an itch to put up some lines in this area. It's big and beautiful.
It would be really nice if someone could post a GPS for the top anchor coordinates for Midnight Special!!! for the next guy:)
