Description 

Large, low crag facing the highway, below This Is Your Brain and north of Stump Wall. Adventurous, rarely climbed trad routes with highway noise and lots of potential for additional sport climbing.

Getting There 

Follow the regular trail into the woods from he cairn and trend right at the first cliff. Work along the base of the crag to a gully with an old fixed rope. Climb this rope to a ledge and traverse to the base of the climbs.
