At the left end of the crag where the rock veers away from the highway towards the quarry is this short overhanging cliffband. With swirly, featured gneiss rock and a pleasant forested setting, this area offers a pleasing complement to the sloughside boulders on the right side.

Getting There 

Park at the quarry and walk east 200m along the highway to where the rock roadcut begins. Follow a short trail into the forest.
