A really cool, blocky bouldering wall/cave. Flat landing, many variations on lines. Recently cleaned to allow the right hand problems to be topped out.

Sufficiently overhanging that you can climb here during a downpour. Also nicely shady, one of the coolest bouldering spots around during the summer.

Getting There 

Just south of Chilly Willy wall. Hike towards the wall, and before you reach the large boulder take a right and hike uphill 15 yds. I.E. immediately opposite Turkey Sandwich and Candy Corn sport routes.
