One of the taller bluffs at ledge park.

Description 

This limestone area has a lot of bouldering potential. There are a lot of routes, but they are very dirty. Some of the rock is broken up and falling apart. But there are some select spots that have great quality rock. There is potential for 20+ problems at the park. Extensive cleaning is needed. It's best to stay quiet, but there is simply not a lot of traffic through this park. Especially during the weekdays. We didn't see a single person on the paths when we went during the weekdays.

Possible V1? Start in the juggy finger pockets on the bottom and go straight up, staying away from the nice finger pocket halfway up the face.

We did some climbing around here when we were desperate, and I've read that others did a while ago. I remember a really short tower with a rap from a tree branch. I believe UW did/does their final trip for the rappelling course here too.
