Description 

This is a new Bouldering area South of Galena. Short Cliffs South of the Abandon Winston Tunnel's West Portal. Multiple Bouldering routes around 20ft tall. The most interesting is a 150ft traverse route @ 10-20ft off the ground over the undercut. Hang 3 webs from the trees above and rope up for safety. I Traversed from East to West, Cleaning Moss as I went. This Area is new and most rocks are covered with moss and spider webs.
