This is a marvelous addition to the Refuge with a broad selection of climbs on really excellent rock. The views down into the Power Line Rd. valley, as well in the Refuge are excellent and the approach is well marked and easy to find. Nice find indeed and great development effort led by Marcy and Geir. Was great to get out there a couple times already!!
