Description

This sweet little stack of rock is home to a bunch of great climbs in the 5.11-5.12 range. The routes are tightly packed and generally receive afternoon sun.

Getting There

Approach via the Central Gorge. Either cross the river by the bathroom and then hike under the Eldorado Roof, or follow the trail until directly across from the Crystal, descend steeply to the river and cross over wooden bridge.
