This is the first cliff band down and to your left (N) after you pass the Spillway Crag. There are many short cracks here between 35 and 80 feet that can be either led or TRed from numerous double bolt anchors along the broad flat top. The most obvious line in the right-facing "Demonology" dihedral. Shady in the morning, the whole crag comes into the sun in the afternoon. There is a prominent ledge bisecting the whole cliff at mid-height.

Getting There 

To reach these short cracks, walk out the Mining Road a 1/2 mile from the Ellery Dam until you pass "Gold Mind" (5.9) on the Spillway Crag to your right. Either descend down the talus field to your left (N) to the very bottom of the cliff or else walk a little further and rap in from the top to a broad ledge that traverses the whole cliff at mid-height.
