100 yards before (S) the first tunnel is a diminutive crag on the left (W) side of the road that features two short but high quality moderates. The Crag gets morning sun, and afternoon shade. This crag gets shade earlier than most of the other left-side routes, so is a good option once The Broken Arrows start to get sunny and hot. This cliff is right on the road, so expect a large number of near-proximity gawkers.
Park at various pullouts before or after the crag, near the first tunnel. Walk down or up the road, depending on where you park. Routes start literally four feet from the road.
