Description 

A small crag with lots of boulders below just left of the Chatfield State Park gate. Usually lots of trash, bring a trash bag to help keep this area clean. The park recently put a lot of work into graffiti removal and clean up. The more climbers that visit here the better the chances that it stays protected and clean. This area gets direct afternoon sun and its usually protected from the elements and wind because its incredibly steep. The potential is here for a quality, roadside, bouldering area. This is without a doubt one of the best places to climb if their is snow on the ground.
