Description

New crag in 2010. Part of the main wall on the North side of the road above the Switchback (upper Canyon). Half a mile down cliff from Slavery and 300 yards or so down from Metropolis. Currently 35 routes with room for a few more. 11 routes in the John Henry Grotto at the far left, 9 routes in Coolsville area, 9 on the Cigar, 2 on the Nugget and 4 at Vulvus Godzillicus. Sunny in the morning and shady in the afternoon. The Cigar is a free standing pillar with routes on the inside, facing the cliff, so it is shady all day.

Getting There

There is a large parking lot a half mile down the road from the main (Slavery) parking lot on the southern side of the road. Find a trail angling up the hillside toward the cliff.
