This west-facing crag sits at the end of the road that parallels the fenceline and is the southern-most crag at the Pinnacles. A number of short but fun crack and face lines are here with Nice Cleavage (5.6), Five O'Clock Shadow (5.11b) and Cling Plus (5.11c) being among the best. Morning and late afternoon shade.
Approach via forest road 3N07, which parallels the obvious fenceline, and drive to the end of the road where the crag will be obvious. The approach is all of a minute or less.
