This is a small area near the road with three boulders all overhanging and all facing each other. The routes are not classics, but they are very easy to find and are all together which is nice.

Getting There 

Drive down the road until you have gone past three water crossings. Just before the fourth water crossing, park on the right side of the road and the boulders are on the plateau across the road.

Climbing Season

For the Palo Duro Canyon State Park area.

The rock on the slab is decent. The rock on the overhang is very poor. The rock on the roof varies. I blew a huge piece off of the starting hold of the left Overhang route. I will be looking for better rock in the canyon next time for sure. My advice...smaller and lighter can climb at this area, but careful, the rock is very brittle.
