Description 

This is the spot for an adventurous unique ferguson day. nice steep sport routes. shade all day. secluded.... very secluded. Three bolted routes. Two trad routes and much more potential. fun. by no means is this the best crag in ferg, but you will never see a crowd here nor will you see many obvious chalked up holds. Test your route finding ability.

Getting There 

Hike is 1.4 miles. Hike past all the main walls. Hike the main trail until you duck under a small river birch that grows over the trail. The main trail heads north to the ridge( don't follow ). Hike straight. You should see a semi trail with a few pieces of red parachord tied to trees. Hike for 5 minutes .cross river. Up steep hill. Boom. Eldorado. More routes are coming. And remember.... Safety first

I agree, please share! I appreciate where you are coming from, but this website is about sharing. If you want it kept secret, don't post it (especially on Reddit ... really?). Besides, if it's so "secluded," how much traffic will it actually get?

Would it be possible to get the coordinates for this crag? Took the cams for a walk looking for it. Ended up coming WAY short, but a general idea would be awesome.

Charlie - sorry to hear you came up short but I'm glad you went for it. So I believe my partner put the GPS coordinates on geotreks( is that a site?) and the crag is almost exactly 1.7 miles up canyon and you gain 2100 ft. My buddy is in pa school right now but ill ask him to put up GPS coordinates, in the mean time good luck searching and a single rack should suffice. Bring 10-15 ft of webbing/ cordage if you plan to tr. top anchors are in a central location above the edge.
