Description

This is a good sized crag at Kootenai, with a decent amount of varied climbs and rock. The climbing here ranges from 5.6 to 5.13 with a large concentration of routes in the middle range. Trad routes are available as are sport lines.

Getting There

This area is the first crag of rock you encounter after hiking up the main trail. There is a trail to the base that leans toward the west. When you approach this crag, you will see a flat rock pointing towards the creek. On your right there will be a couple of obvious big boulders, the trail begins there. The trail will take you to the base of the routes where War Pigs, ,11th Commandment, and Fire Drill start.
