Did a nice little trad route on the steep buttress. Good pro and pumpy moves on an overhanging face following a zig zagging crack. About 40 feet high with some loose rock toward the top. Cams and small nuts sewed it up. Maybe 5.8. Oct 15, 2013

Checked this area out today. Interesting bit of rock... and much better than nearby Lookout Rock. Also found some smaller crags and boulders. Dirty due to local teenagers littering the bottom with PBR empties. Slab was mostly really easy, but there are some steep sections halfway up which offer some more difficult routes. Graffiti kinda detracts from what would otherwise be a nice and clean piece of rock. Rock quality was generally excellent. Will be bringing the rack next time. Didn't see the old bolts though....

Looking for route info if anyone has any. Found some old bolts here a while back while exploring. It's mostly easy, but it's a pretty cool exposed bit of rock. Jan 29, 2013
