Comments: You can easily anchor at the top of the 2nd pitch by wrapping the large boulder that is right in front of you when you pop up onto the ledge. Took me a few times to figure this one out, but if you got a thin rack it works great.

Comments: [Ed. Note - Moved from duplicate posting]

Details: This area has just about everything: trad, sport, top rope, and aid. The rock is of ver high quality. The crag was a very short approach, 30 seconds off the road. It has very good beginner cracks to toprope, a 5.10 finger crack that you can clean aid at a very easy A1, a few sport routes in the 5.9-5.11 difficulty. This place has just about everything in a fairly small area, so it is a great place to take friends that climb at different levels.... more >>

Comments: Pulling the 2nd roof can be a little nerve racking if you dont have a cam to fit the wide crack, because you have to pull the roof with a fall that would not be very fun. pro is not that great, but throw on some screamers and they'll work.

Comments: I've been working on this problem for the past 4 days, and seeing as how I suck at climbing, I can only do the first 4 moves, but this problem is sweet.
