Located up the hill and to the right of the main wall. There are three routes on it with a bit of an airy feeling for a belay ledge that makes you feel uneasy until the first bolt is clipped.

Getting There 

From the main wall, walk up the creek to approximately 50 yards and look up and to the left. The ledge is located about halfway up the hill with 3-4 routes on it.

Climbing Season
