This cliff reminds me of Inca Stone (AKA: Truth Or Consequences) it is pretty short for the most part, though a few are taller than others. The rock is mostly solid, but the climbing feels discontinuous. Though it is not a destination crag, it is a reasonable place to get some mileage, 30-50 feet at a time. It was far enough up the canyon so as to be dry on Tuesday night when it was raining in the lower sections and in Boulder. Aug 23, 2007

The "good winter sun" description only applies to the top of the crag and/or the end of winter. Shade on most of the crag until mid-winter and on lower crag year round from trees. Jan 4, 2018

OK, there's much better sun now that it's Spring, and the climbing is worth a visit, which apparently few people have done. Thanks, Greg, and hopefully you're pleased that I'm not downrating your difficulty ratings this time. Agreed with all of them. I must be getting soft in my old age. Apr 23, 2018
