Description 

This area features some great top ropes and even a few single pitch aid lines. A few of the climbs are really fun and have excellent rock quality. Some of the longest climbs in all of Mount Rubidoux are found here. About 50 feet high. The face gets morning shade, but is in the sun all afternoon.


Getting There 

Directly under the big cross on the west side. Just follow the road north from The Island. The rock will be up and to your right.

Stand on the dark, broken rock just right of the Diagonal Crack. Move up and right to a finish on top of a slight bulge. High enough to make it fun.
