Description

This is a relatively newly bolted crag just east of Practice Rock. Somebody went bolt-crazy on this rock, but the result is very well-protected routes. It's a steep dihedral; the east face is a solid slab, while the west face feels inverted and a little more crumbly. With a 60m rope, there's a great belay station with a nice rock as a bench.

To help reorganize this area, this crag is divided into the Main Crag & Lower Right Side.

There is now a lot of very very loose rocks/boulders along the approach to the top tier because of the rescue yesterday. BE CAREFUL Aug 11, 2008
Does anyone know about the new climbs above the Bowling Alley? Is there a new guidebook which covers these climbs? Any info much appreciated!
