3 distinct limestone ribs jutting out, waiting to be climbed. The crags are approxiamtely 20 yards uphill from the road. In the spring/summer, the foliage will grow in so thick, they probably won't be visible.

The middle rock is about 60 feet at its highest.

Getting There 

Drive towards the softball fields bordering the Mines of Spain recreation area; park in the lot. From there, the 3 ribs of rock are just uphill, across the road.
