This cliff has seen some incredible development. Despite some previous complaining about routes being sharpie'd, most routes are now labeled with climbing tape over some small stone propped at the cliff. A great compromise for such an active area.

Many long routes are present. The developers have done a fantastic job of labeling pitch difficulty and length as a good portion of routes require 2 lower-offs to reach the ground. Jan 16, 2018
