Description 

Very shady area, very quiet as well. Not to many people on this side of the park to begin with, especially at the top of the mountain. You may see some hikers, but chances are no other climbers. The rock is decent, with large, unstable flakes here and there.

Getting There 

To get there go to the back entrance of the park. On busy days you may have to park along the side of the road(property owner doesn't have issues with it). Walk along the paved path and then take the first left. Follow the white trail markers up the hill until you get to the (red) cliffside trail. The white trail can be a little exasperating due to how steep. Towards the top there are dozens of bouldering problems. If your looking to trad climb you can turn right and walk along the bottom of the high cliffs, but due to LNT I would still go all the way up to the red trail (then rap down). Follow that to the right, cliff is on the right side but the higher portion is further down (bolts will be on the left, clearing to cliff on the right). Overall, the approach is short but very steep.
