This site has seen several chapters of development. Prior to being developed as a sport-climbing site in the 90s, MST was apparently used for aid practice. There are the remnants of old aid lines which consist of pasted copperheads and quarter-inch button-heads. These historical artifacts litter the various boulders and walls and contribute to a unique atmosphere.
Early 90s development turned the site into an accessible, first-generation sport climbing crag. Routes from this era are generally very well protected, although some of the routes sport 20+ year-old 3/8" externally-threaded sleeve bolts and 3/8" wedge bolts that are overdue for replacement.
