This little bluff is a couple miles south of Ibex on the east side of the main road. The climbs are mainly west and southwest facing so if you're losing the light at Ibex this little gem will keep the rays going a couple minutes longer.

Getting There 

If approaching from route 6 take the main road past the Ibex turnoff. The large bluff (with mining operation) is visible on the lefthand side. Don't turn off too early and head closer to the south side of the formation. A road takes you directly to the main crag with a 30 second approach time.

If coming from Ibex just drive south along the playa, weaving your way through the brush. A road dumps you off directly at the Island.
