This is the cave like area at the far west side of God's Crag. A great place to hide from the rain and home to one of the best and hardest routes in the area. On a breezy day you get a refreshing mist from the waterfall that flows off the top of the Mileski Wall.

A super high quality route that never lets up. Pull on pockets, slopers and edges to an undercling "rest", then power through the roof on miniscule pockets and small edges to the second crux, stay strong and race to the chains. Super Classic!
