Description 

This area has a few really fun routes. 100ft of of solid rock (plenty of gear placement options that are sound) with face climbing, a fun roof, corner routes and a few jams here and there and a really fun offwidth to roof start option called Cal's Ceiling 5.7+. You'll find a nice mix of features in this area. Great cruising to moderate difficulty level routes.

Most of the routes start at the big ledge about 20ft up (can't miss it once there). You can mix and match routes (starter route to ledge links to start of another route) easily.

There are options for anchors on top including slinging natural features.
