Description Suggest change

Another great dome for moderate routes, although some of the "beginner" routes are spicier than average. The rock looks kinda chossy from the road, but some great routes are hidden between the moss, lichen, and blocks. Don't miss the great sport route, "Ben Dover."

Getting There Suggest change

One of the last rocks in the canyon. Look for the big dome of the right side of the road at the 8.2 mile mark.
