Just another KC choss pile. With a few tough "bouldering on a rope" routes

25 foot routes on Blue River limestone.

Most routes have obligatory hanging/bouldery starts with a jug rail for the 2nd clip, followed by technical crimping.


Getting There 

Park at the obvious pull off, walk slightly southwest down the road (away from the bridge) and find a trail leading to base. 1 minute approach.
