A long bluff line with little development. The rock quality is varied but overall is decent. Lacks in height and steepness compared to other areas of rock. The bluff has a plethora of boulders, slab sections, vertical walls, and cracks.

There are no established trails so it will be a bushwhacking adventure.

Getting There 

There are small pullouts along the main road but the best option is to park at the main campground of rock creek. Hike up the hill to the southeast until reaching the bluff. Walk along the bluff to reach all climbs.

Walking up drainage ditches is the easiest way to avoid the thorny jungles of death.
