Kind of a hybrid crag, combining Wild Iris style butress climbing on wind exposed faces, but more like the Sinks Canyon main wall in terms of height. There are more crimps here than at the Iris, and more pockets than at Sinks, but the rock is better quality dolomite than Sinks. There are about 40 routes here, described in both Bechtel's and Collins'/White's guides.
Drive all the way up Sinks Canyon, past Bruce's Camp. Continue on the paved road up the switch backs. The road is closed here from the late fall until around Memorial Day, effectively prohibiting access unless you have a snow machine or want to ski 4 or 5 miles up the road.
