Description 

This cliff is located in the lowlands close to the highway at the end of Quarry Road. The highway can be seen from the cliff. There are are two main faces to the cliff. One is a slab, and one is overhung. At the intersection is a nice, low angle dihedral. The lower section of the overhung face is relatively blank, but there is the possible opportunity for some very hard moves. There is a nice arete on the right of the overhung face and a nice looking crack system to the right of the arete.

Getting There 

Walk to the very end of Quarry Road. When you see the highway, the road turns to a path. The path runs between a series of outcroppings and the highway. You'll see the Highway Cliff in a small clearing after a short stroll after the road ends.
