One of the most beautiful sections of the River Road cliffs, this area catches your eye as you whisk by in your vehicle or on your bike. It is sheer and slightly overhanging and is graced with elegant, dark, water streaks. This buttress is a section of the wall between Negro Bill and Short canyons and lies near mile marker 3.
