Description

This wall is shady and cool in the summer. It is a good traverse wall with a number of individual boulders and a couple of short/easy sport routes. It is great for playing "add on" or just building endurance through the traverse. It is a great place to just hang out and do some moderate level bouldering (V0-V5).
