Description

Not quite as classic as The Candy Store but this crag has about six excellent 100' trad/mixed test pieces in the 5.10 to 5.11 range.Opposite sun aspect with it's location on the East side of the Rio Red Tail offers an excellent alternative to the Candy Store. Check out the sand bar swimming hole.
Caution: Poison-Ivy Details
