Description

A really cool, steep (30-50° overhung) bouldering wall/cave with some very interesting holds—flat rails, juggy incuts, blobby slopers and underclings. Flat landing, many variations on lines. Recently cleaned to allow the right hand problems to be topped out. Some of the holds are very coarse-grained rhyolite, whereas others sport some nice water polish. Hopefully if this spot gets some more traffic, the rough holds will wear down a little and get more comfy with time.

Sufficiently overhanging that you can climb here during a downpour. Also nicely shady, one of the coolest bouldering spots around during the summer.

Getting There

Just south of Chilly Willy wall. Hike towards the wall, and before you reach the large boulder take a right and hike uphill 15 yds. I.E. immediately opposite Turkey Sandwich and Candy Corn sport routes.
