Description Suggest change

Shady when there is tree coverage, can by busy. Good collection of short overhanging routes(5.10a -5.12a) close to the parking lot.

Getting There Suggest change

From the parking lot walk the main trail maybe a minute or two, on your left you should see a short overhanging wall with a crack spliting it down the middle. There will be a path leading up to this wall. There is also a trail going directly to this wall from the parking lot.
