The area is north of Rail Road rocks. It has a small number of routes that don't get much use.

Getting There 

There are two was to get there. The first is to follow the trail above the climbing area and walk down the second class a access point just north of Rail Road rocks. Then turn right and head north to higher education. The second way to get there is to walk to Mr. Jimmy and the walk to the rail road tracks. Walk along the tracks until you past R.R rocks.
