Description Suggest change

Mostly North-facing boulders and crags, except for a few pockets of boulders in the Gaslands.

On the opposite side of the gorge/creek from the Lightside Area of Jaybird. This side is predominantly shady and gets far less sun than the its opposite Lightside. If its rains or snows, expect far longer dry times. Lots of boulders, many short crags.

Getting There Suggest change

Hike in as per normal from the paved road at whatever pull-off point is shortest. Drop in, cross the creek, get after it. Alternate is the gas well road from Gaslands Boulders, but thats equally long and more unknown at this point.
