A south facing crag with a variety of routes from 5.7 - 5.9. Climbs are about 5 pitches or so.
Directions are found in the Windy Canyon description. The descent is easy by Red Rocks standards - follow cairns off the back of the rock to a gully. Follow this down a short ways, looking for a small saddle on the left. Cut over to this saddle and then down ledges to the base of the face.
