Description

The square block at the base of the large scooped out headwall. Named for the surprising quality of the routes on it. I was encouraged to "not waste my time" on this section of the cliff. Glad I did!

Getting There

Makes up the right border of the Iron Curtain and goes down hill from there (pun intended!)
