Stumbled across this area.  It seems like it has good climbing, especially trad.  Anyone visited?

I put up a few FA's with Craig Luebben back in the day, must be 20 years ago by now.   Back then, it was generally agreed to leave it undocumented as an "adventure area".   So I guess I shouldn't be surprised that our route-names are not on MP, or anywhere.  

We did two 2.5 pitch, 5.10 routes to the top of the "Cardinal" which is the obvious sub-peak that has the shape of a crested bird you see from the road.  That's just about all I remember, except for cleaning out the dirt/plants from the crack on the first pitch.    I remember very good granite, good pro and a cool summit.   Rack of R.P.s to #4 Friend.
