Lower slabs looking East.

Description 

Collection of moderate to easy slabs topropeable for beginners. This cliff sits right on a little swampy pond so beware that when the mosquitoes are hungry you are the first thing they come after!
Bring the family as this area has a great spot to hang out at the bottom and an easy clifftop access and toprope setups off trees.


Getting There 

From horse farm parking area (north parking/approach):
Walk down trail for 10 min, until you walk up on some 20ft+ tall boulders on your right, take trail to your right (before Round Pond) continue up trail (there is a sign saying right to upper cliffs and left/straight to lower slabs and boulder natural)


Slabs below upper cliffs.

The crux is getting into the second crack system, but it is easily protected with a medium nut or TCU. Find the good feet on the face and finger locks.
