A small band of rock with boulder problems galore. Easy to find shade or sun, as the temperature dictates. Volcanic, which feels more like granite in places. Little known, potential for fun.

Getting There 

Driving east on HWY 44 past Viola, you will come to a short 4 lane passing section. The outcropping is on the right, south side of the road. Best to park at the bottom of the road grade, walk on the old abandoned road.
