Description 

This is a massive chunk of rock South of Asterisk Pass. One of the tallest portions of rock in the park, it host a fine collection of old school and modern multi-pitch climbs. There has been a fair amount of route development here in the past several years. The crag is logically broken into several different sections, from the east side from Asterisk Pass to around the corner to the west side at the base of opposite side of Asterisk Pass.

Getting There 

Depends greatly on what you want to climb.
