Description 

An even shorter section of rock than the Main Area, about 15 feet high. These 3 routes are all easily bouldered/soloed, with great positive holds and small shallow pockets, but the rock quality leaves something to be desired.

Getting There 

Follow the marked dirt trail another 200 yards left and uphil past the Main Area.

For the Seward Highway area.

If the belay area was cleared out a bit this would be a even better little crag. Some of the better quality rock along the highway, just needs some TLC.
