  • Description 

    This convenient, south-facing area offers excellent and difficult face, arete, overhang, mantle, and traverse problems on solid, Eldorado, hardened sandstone. Perched up above the cement platform, it has a very scenic and somewhat secluded feel.

    Getting There 

    Hike across the bridge to the Whale's Tail base and cave. Hike a few more feet up to the cement platform, look up the talus due north approximately 30 feet, and you will see the blocks.

    Climbing Season
