A fun little southwest facing crag in a secluded canyon with great views of the city and a really nice area to belay, picnic or just hangout. This area finds itself in morning shade, but afternoon and evening sun. Just south of the schoolroom area, its a short walk from the parking lot at the end of 29th street. The climbs range from 5.9 to 5.10b with everything from crimpers to jugs, a small roof, and an easy, somewhat short approach. Because it is a smaller area it does not get as much attention as 9th Street. The rock quality is good. There aren't that many routes, and perhaps that's the reason that it doesn't see more traffic. Easy toprope access and great photo opportunities with a great view of the city below.
The crag is visible from the parking lot at the end of 29th street. Park at the 29th street trail head parking, head to the Bonneville shoreline trail and then go north a short distance past the first large power pole on the right - look for the climbers trail that leads to the base of the crag. You'll be looking for the trail that climbs south east up the hill side. Approach is approx 10 min.
