This is the PERFECT crag for developing your trad chops. Excellent routes that deserve to be well-maintained. You will generally find yourself all alone here, and you'll get lots of afternoon sun, which is nice in the colder months. The approach isn't bad either, as the river can be crossed easily from the west side in all but highest of flows just below the cliffs. May 14, 2012
