Description

Located on an eroding hillside covered with ivy, this granite splitter shines out. Find the best hands you can as the feet are thin on this one! Strike like lighting to the lip, then top it out. SDS is harder!

Location

Located in an old ivy covered quarry along the Buttermilk Trail. Park at the pullout opposite 4810 Riverside Drive and go downhill. The ledge in on your right before the massive downfall. Enjoy!
