Description 

There are a few climbing areas that are reached from the Boy Scout Trail, which is located on the right side of the road about 1/2 mile past the Indian Cove Ranger Station, before you get to the main Indian Cove campground and climbing areas. The first one you come to is The Monkey's Paw , which is on your right. Then past that there is a rather large group of formations on the left, which is actually the rock just west of The Big Top; this is the Boy Scout Trail Cliffs. Then further still, way, way up on the hill to the right, is The Iron Sausage.


Getting There 

Park at the Boy Scout Trail head and start hiking west.
