Description Suggest change

This small crag is located just across from 8 Mile Campground and has a few nice cracks and a contrived sport route that can all be led or easily toproped.

Getting There Suggest change

Park across the road from 8 Mile CG. Chloe's Rib is right by the road. The rest of the routes are a short way down the same face. You can reach these by continuing along the wall and doing a small scramble  up the gulley or continuing on the trail till you're about level with the top of the wall. There's a small offshoot going left from trail that descends to the base of the climb.
