Be quiet! This area is directly below the oft visited Grandads overlook


Small area with only two routes at the moment. Great views from the top, almost overlooks the city.

Getting There 

Follow the cliff line all the way to the end of the bluff. The last descent looking band of rock is what your looking for.

Climbing Season

I'm going to Kuwait soon, but truly hope these routes have been getting some travel and will get better with time. :) And will be back at some point to finish what Fred and I have started....
