One summer my friends and I were the only people making the journey to this crag.
It is a good choice for the summer as there is lots of shade. The rock here is of high quality and rivals many crags in the area. This area is unique in that is is home to the best 5.12 finger cracks in the Gorge, and some of the most imposing 5.10 offwidths also. There are many high end sport climbs here as well. If you are looking for climbing that has some adventure this crag is for you.

Getting There 

Check the guidebook or at Water Stone Outdoors for approach info. Parking can be access-sensitive.

really cool area with way more than its share of 5.12 cracks. I don't want to give too much away about it, since the guidebook gives a pretty good description, but some beta: some of the trails to the crag are easy to lose. Wear long pants, even in the summer; they may as well call the place "South Nettle." If you can find the rap-in point, do it. It's much easier to navigate this place above the cliff, though it may take a couple trips to get the geography dialed.
