Description 

A nice cliff band with slabby to overhanging routes reaching 15 feet tall with excellent landings and some exciting top outs. I am in the process of writing up a complete route list on this area, but for now, here are some pictures to give you a feel for it.

Getting There 

Find the parking lot between 40th Ave. W. and 27th Ave. W. on Skyline Drive. Walk north up the road about 100 yards until it intersects the Superior Hiking trail (small blue signs) on either side. Just before reaching the SHT there is another steep, wide, gravelly trail. Follow this trail uphill for another 200 yards and you will see the wall up on the ridge.

I visited this area a few years ago and we had the hell of a day up there - great moderate bouldering! Good job putting it online dudes!
