Description

This is a small crag with about 10 routes in the Practice Rock/Bowling Alley area. Its submission was triggered by a reorganization of the Boulder Canyon section. The original route here was The Hard They Come, 11 by K. Lugbill & C. Newmann back in 1980. At one point, this was an area to head towards, to get away from the crowds.
