Getting There

This is in the general area of Surprising Crag and Sport Park, which lies on the S side of the road. Park as for Sport Park, cross the creek, head left or E. Look for a slightly-overhanging wall low. 3-5 minute approach. You can access it from Surprising Crag, but that is more difficult.

From Peter Franzen "Overhung Wall...lies below Surprising Crag; these can be approached by heading downstream (N) shortly after crossing the creek, then heading uphill to the crags."
