Description Suggest change

Mainly sport climbing, but there are some trad lines also. I haven't climbed much here, but there are some high quality sport climbs especially in the more difficult grades. Most of the routes are long, so bring up to 14 QDs. Bring tape for the crack climbs.

There have been eagle nesting closures which have limited access to this crag in the Feb. 1 - July 31 timeframe.
