This is a small area with sport climbs on conglomerate limestone. This is not the perfect limestone Mt. Charleston is known for, but the routes are fun. The cliff gets shade most the day.
Head up Mt. Charleston as for the other areas, pass the road that goes to Robber's Roost and continue as for the Hood, but stop at the Fletcher Canyon trail head. Follow this trail up for 10 minutes. Drop into the the wash on the left about 50 yards after a trail that heads up and right. Find the switch backs heading up to the cliff.
