This is a collection of small rocks in the area between Bihedral & Inca Stone on the N side of the canyon. There has been some development here, in particular on Hillbilly 1. While this area is not a destination, it can be fun for a quick visit when time is limited. There is a bit of poison ivy in the gully for the sensitive.

There is a fair amount of poison ivy in the gully, especially on the R side. Approach takes about 10 minutes.
It is a fairly powerful route for its 35 feet of climbing and its moderate grade. Shorter folks may have trouble at the 1st bolt and call it 11c, but strong, taller climbers might call it 10+. Fire up to positive but small holds to the left of the 1st bolt. Go left first, then up to a good side-pull/pocket. Then, go R, then hand-traverse left. To finish, there are 2 ways to go.
