Description

Beautiful meadow climbing just near the creek. Be prepared for gawking and lots of questions ("who put those bolts up there?; how did you get the rope up there?; did you go to the top?) from the several hikers that use the trail into the canyon.
Get morning sun and afternoon shade.

Getting There

Follow the trail at the left side of the creek for about 100 yards. The crag is just to the left.
