Description 

Apparently this area is owned by the same company as Stone Haven and is CLOSED.

This is unfortunate given that the 35-40 ft high slab holds the distinction as being the ONLY crag in Ken Nichols' "Blue Book" where every climb has at least one star!

Of the 8 climbs listed, Ken solo First Ascended seven of them, probably all on the same day in March 1994.

Getting There 

Since it's CLOSED, specific directions are not given.
