Located in a separate canyon from the main area, this group of rocks offers some of the steepest climbing at NJC.

Getting There 

Drive in to a point even with the Roadside Crag and then head right (west) to join a road that heads south into another canyon that runs parallel to the main one with Raven Rocks etc. Continue down this road in to a wash, on the left side of the road is a arch, The Travesty climbs this arch. Ride The Wild and No Use For A Name are 50' away around the corner to the left, on a steep formation.
