Quite popular and deservedly so, this portion of the White Cliffs is stacked with quality routes in a remote-feeling but accessible location. Highlights here include Popular Mechanics (5.9), Ace of Spades (5.9) and Good Housekeeping (5.11a).
Standard approach from Quail Springs Picnic Area then head left along the cliffband when at the base. Plan on 30-40 minutes from the car.
