Description

This crag offers a variety of short (20-30 ft) traditional and top ropes climbs. Trad routes range from 5.5 to 5.10 and all are easily protected. While it isn’t the best crag in MQT, it has some of the best views from the top.

Getting There

Accessed off of the Mount Marquette one way road, 1/2 mile up hill past the gate entrance. At a sharp corner, you will see the rock band beginning on your left. There is room to park on the side of the road there. To approach the cliff, you have two options. You can walk along the bottom. This is a bit overgrown and had a lot of talus (much of it hidden under layers of Leaves. The other option is to immediately head for the top. The walking is much easier that way if you are planning on setting up a top rope.
