Description

The name says it all. Some of the shortest cliffs at the Black Cliffs are located in this area. There are plenty of hard routes to be had though. The classic Bologna Pony is located here along with a good first time leading route called Toddler.

Getting There

Park in dam parking lot and hike the trail to the cliff line.
