This is One Very Large Limestone Wall standing well over 300 feet tall with over 40 routes. The South Face is home too some Monster clip-up, one that has 24 clips in 40m! New routes go in at such a incredible pace it makes hard too keep up-to date with the routes. Witch means there is No Guide Book. So just know when your at this cliff most routes take 15 draws. Some of the long one pitch routes take 26 draws and need a 60m rope to get off. There's two and three pitch routes all over this face. Most routes are in the 5.10- to 12+ range. This is also one of the best place to climb during the winter months.

Getting There 

Right before the third creek crossing take the trail to the left about 20 mins from the trailhead.
