Description 

One of the closer crags to the parking area, right in between the Moosehead area and VJs. There are a variety of climbs here ranging from 5.8 to 5.11 with both single pitch and multi pitch climbing.

The area is center-pieced with a large arch in the center of the area.

Provides a good mix of steep climbing (for Wheeler) and your typical Wheeler slab.

Getting There 

Hike up the trail from the parking lot. Turn left at the boulder and head up the trail towards Moosehead. Once you reach the stone stairs bear right. Take the steep trail up and left to the cliff, passing by a smaller cliff on your right.

Also accessible by scrambling up and left of Standard Route
