A tougher area just up the hill from Indian rock. Almost all Bouldering, though some of the routes are highball enough that a top rope can be helpful.

The area is usually in the shade, helped by some large trees that hide most of the rock from Indian Rock Ave.

Decent is a simple walk off the back of the rock.

If you're up to it, Nat's Taverse (V8) is a must do.

Getting There 

From the main rock, head up hill on Indian Rock Ave. The rock is about a block up on the right side. Approach time: 2 minutes from the main rock, 10 seconds if you park on the street by Mortar rock.
