Description Suggest change

An isolated cluster of crags south of the Snakeskin Buttress, but north of the Corral Crags. SE oriented and protected from the wind and stays in the sun longer than most areas making it nice on the colder days. Ben Folsom was the first to install a very nice and surprisingly long slab route up this excellent rock for the area.
Later routes were added by Jason Stevens and Tim Toula.

Getting There Suggest change

An obvious slab on the south end of the South Corridor in a recessed area up the hill.
