Description Suggest change

This is a sweet little sport/mixed crag that is great for a quick pump or after work burn. It is a fairly short wall, but the rock quality is impeccable. It has a cool view, and nobody here makes this a desirable destination. This was the first crag developed at Middle Mountain.

Getting There Suggest change

Hike down ridgeline from car to uppermost cliff - 50' tall with obvious bolted routes and anchors. All anchors easily reached from top of cliff.
