Description 

South, and East Facing conglomerate sport climbing. Secluded. Creek 40meters away, and hopefully some nice places to jump in when it warms up! Potential for a few less than vertical lines on the left side in the .9-.10 range, and some hard stuff on the right!

Getting There 

Hang a right just before Silver lake at the fork with the bridge. Drive about 5 min, passing the first gate on the right. Continue driving to the Sowerby creek bridge and hang a right where the gated park starts. Drive another 5 min keeping right following the creek and park at the bridge with the shot up bridge marker signs, or another 50 meters to park at the base of the fin.
