Description 

This small crag hosts a handful of sport routes. The rock can be slick and dirty, especially after periods of rain or after spring runoff. Many of the routes are still in the process of being cleaned and should improve with time. Climbing here is incredibly convenient as it is close to the road and requires basically no approach. There are mostly moderate routes, making this a good place for novice leaders.

The cliff gets sun in the morning and shade in the afternoon. The base of the cliff is in the trees and stays pretty shady. Fall is probably the best time to climb here. Temperatures in the Spring are pleasant, but the rock tends to be a little dirty. Summer afternoons in the shade can be comfortable as well.
