DescriptionGenerally shady. This "rock" is well traveled but it's weepy limestone and forms a cave that is quite subject to freeze-thaw that results in sometimes annual changes in routes. Nevertheless, it's still good climbing.
The main cave hosts a good selection of problems in the V4 to V9 range with many eliminates, variations and link-ups. There is also the Murry Pinch V11 is a problem that involves a terrible pinch at the lip then tinny crimps and is between the Football Problem and the Reachy Sidepull problem.
To the left of the roof are several easier problem V2 to about V4 and as you continue left there are more problems but the rock has not recived as much "LOVE" and is thus a bit less reliable.
If you can get over the huge amount of epoxy that has been poured into this area (very little would be climbable here without it) it provides a good change of pace from the typical slabby, sharp granite to be had near town. As well as a shady venue that is at least bearable durring the summer, though if you want to do stuff that is hard for you, better to wait till temps are in the 60's or lower as the rock is pretty polished.
