Located 1.75 miles up the fireroad, and on the right hand side. The approach is easy and there are a high concentration of tall, scary problems to choose from which see very low amounts of climber traffic. Try out the Highball Arete, or the 6'-4" Arete. Fun!!

I was up at highball last night for a quick session and it appears some hooligans have tagged the 6'4" arÍte boulder with huge red names, (it's always had a good bit of writing on it but these are like 12" tall letters). I ordered some graffiti remover and I'm planning on scrubbing it over the next few days, but if anyone is up to help out it would be sick to get this thing back into 4 star shape.
