Description 

A big vertical limestone boulder with more holds than you can shake a stick at. Cracks in between the boulder were made by acid eons ago and they are deep and hide jugs for a nice easy top out up and left.

The landing zone is flat and soft so a pad is rarely used here during warm-ups, in fact most folks don't even put on climbing shoes because the feet are so huge.

Getting There 

A Boulder that is the first one you will see on your left as you are walking into the draw, maybe after walking for 2 mins. It is on the other side of the small stream and there is a trail so please don't make another one by breaking off towards it too early.

Climbing Season

For the Priest Draw area.
