Description 

This area is barely up Cedar Canyon. It is soft, slabby sandstone, which makes the area very exciting (and scary) to climb. This area is east facing and therefore gets the morning sun and the afternoon shade. Usually this place isn't too busy, maybe just a few adventurous locals in the evenings.
Communication is a little difficult because Highway 14 is only about 30' away.


Getting There 

Drive up Cedar Canyon, you'll see it on the left in about 2 minutes. It's right across from a foot bridge. It's right off the road.

P1-The climb starts off at about 5.7 clipping a few bolts leading to the corner. After the first step where a bolt ladder (My Generation) breaks out right, stay in the corner the crux is about 2/3 up the pitch where it steepens up.( I remember liebacking) and ends at a good ledge and anchor. 5.9+P2- is quite a bit easier and stays in the corner for about 65 feet to the top of the wall. 5.6-ish This route was probably done long ago.
