Description 

A cool summer hang and a good destination on rainy days, this steep wall will keep you occupied for a couple of trips anyway. The rock faces east and is in the trees so it never gets too hot and the big overhang offers shelter if one of those summer thunderstorms rolls in. the routes are all one pitch, but range from 50' to about 90'. There are a couple of 5.11 warm ups and mostly 5.12s, with one project still being worked. Enjoy a little crank dujuor....

Getting There 

See the directions for the Crag Ranch for more details on how to find the trail down from the firetower. Follow the Crag Ranch Trail down to the point where the trail goes left through a squeeze between a large spruce tree and a boulder and go right downhill instead of going left. Just below another large boulder trend slightly right to the indistinct rib which is followed straight downhill to the Cafe.
