Description 

This outcrop of rock probably has the most potential of the three areas here. There are perhaps a dozen lines on this rock. There are several boulders immediately around and behind it that offer their own problems and challenges. The main rock itself is composed of two parallel 'fins' of rock, stacked against a cluster of large boulders between them. The main walls of the two fins face north and south.


Getting There 

5 min walk from bridge.
