Description 

This cliff was discovered and exploited in 2005. When viewed from Eagle Rock, it is the third cliff to the left. doesn't look like much from a distance. Looks are deceiving.....
You had better like roofs if you venture here. All routes were put in ground up.

Getting There 

Hike the ridge road, drop down an obscure trail on the left after a big downhill but before it starts up the big incline.
