Description

20 degree overhung (avg) sandy limestone cliff. Most routes are long and pumpy. Cliff faces SE so the season is sometimes winter (sunny days), spring and fall. Way to hot in the sun in the summer. Routes start at 11a and head up to 14a. The easy routes have never been equipped. Some pockets and tufas, but mostly edges and rails. Rarely is anyone here.
Guidebook is Inland Northwest Rockclimbs by Marty Bland.
