Description

This crag is plaqued with some of the chossiest rock at Shelving that will mostly likely rain down on you at some point while climbing here. That being said, the easiest routes are located here. Belayers should wear a helmet and be on the look for falling rocks. Despite small bits of loose rock here and there the climbs are actually a good time.

Getting There

This crag is right of the large gully at the end of the Big Wall. It is also a five minute hike from the parking making it very convient to get to.
