Description

One of the best summer crags in the SE before 2PM when it comes into the sun. The cliff doesn't get any sun in winter. Most of the routes here go through a low roof then up excellent slightly less than vertical granite for the rest of the ride. The cliff receives an oddly low amount of traffic for a cliff this good which is probably due to a combination of the difficulty of the routes (5.11+ and up) and the long approach (almost as long as laurel knob's).

Getting There

Either hike below the south face of the courthouse or hike to the east end of the catwalk ledge. In either case, Hike up to the ridgeline east of the devil's courthouse and follow the trail as it winds its way through huckleberry bushes then down a short slab, then follow the trail as it jogs a little left then a little right near a boulder and then down the obvious to follow steep section of the trail through rhodos to the base of the cliff.
