Description

Perfect rock and a great variety of climbs make this a popular location. Its shady in the morning and catches a lot of sun later in the day. The routes tend to be technical face or corner/crack systems.

Getting There

From the bottom of the upper gorge trail take the lefthand trail and head up the talus slope on its righthand side. Head for the "inset" alcove area at the top of the slope
