Awesome Sandstone roof loaded with boulder problems with lower end difficulty trad lines nearby. A frequented site by locals.

Getting There 

From the parking area, follow the approach trail until you reach the bluff line. Look left and notice a roof loaded with problems. Approach it and have fun.
