Description

A newer crag that is currently undergoing development. It features a long, broken cliff line that has a lot of potential for both sport and trad routes.

Getting There

Heading East on I-40 take exit 35 for Highway 23 and head North. After about 12 miles turn left onto Shores Lake Road. After another 4 miles, turn right onto Stephens Rd. This road will dead end at a roundabout after about a half mile. Park here and take the trail marked with a rock cairn on the West side of the roundabout. You will arrive at the first routes within a few minutes of easy hiking.
