This is a shady valley-esqe outcropping with rock that will tear up your hands and in some places, the rock isn't solid enough to put any weight on. Besides that,there are a few good boulder problems that are easy and fun to climb.

Getting There 

Turn onto E 118th Ter from Holmes road, and follow the road until you get to troost ave, where you take a right. once you get to the end of the road, get out and take a left on the gravel walkway. In about 20 or 30 feet, you run into a poorly maintained mtb trail to your left. FOllow this until you cross over the train tracks. then, once you get onto he nexty rail, follow it up until you reach teh fork in the trail, and go right. continue going right on all subsequent turns until you get to a long, straight train that is pretty wellmaintained. follow that for a mile or so, and then when you get to where youhave the option to take a left off of the trail to a less maintained trail that leads you to a clearing with a view of the river, take it. The rocks are to your left.
