Description Suggest change

This crag is just to the right of tunnel #5 when you are facing east on U.S. 6. It is approached from the trail to Catslab. You take the Catslab approach trail for less than a minute before heading up the hill to the left (east). The rock gets morning shade and afternoon sun. It is typical Clear Creek rock. The Dog House is to the north, and the Catslab is to the south.
