Description 

This area is just across the road and a little up hill from the southern parking area. Look for a large boulder that is leaning up against a cliff. On the uphill side is the Diamond boulder, with three routes. The cave is obvious and has an incredible crack that some (myself included) believe to be "The best crack in Spokane". So this is what I know it as. The bottom of the cave is littered with gnarly blocks. One pad is a must, more would sure be nice. It's also nice to have more than one spotter.

There are two ways to do this thing. One involves using the rock to the left for your feet. The other skips the rock. This way is hard. Bring your A-game. When you reach the wall that the cracked boulder leans against, traverse right and up to topout.

Getting There 

Cross the road to the east of the southern parking area and walk uphill. about 100 - 150yards.
