Moderate sport climbing. These routes were put up sometime around 2005 by Stuart Emerson. Kind of a forgotten crag.

Getting There 

Park in the big gravel area across the road from the Cove. Follow the power-line cut toward the south. When the road cuts right toward the river cut left and cross a small ravine. After a while you'll see the cliff with some debris at the base.

For a true adventure, at the end of a long day hike out straight up the canyon through stick land to the main road.
