Description 

Just another KC choss pile. With a few tough "bouldering on a rope" routes

25 foot routes on Blue River limestone.

Most routes have obligatory hanging/bouldery starts with a jug rail for the 2nd clip, followed by technical crimping.

STICK CLIP HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Getting There 

Park at the obvious pull off, walk slightly southwest down the road (away from the bridge) and find a trail leading to base. 1 minute approach.
