Description 

Down and left from Upper Walt's Rocks and facing southwest is this large cliffband which despite it's size has fewer routes than it's upper neighbor. That said, there are a number of quality lines to do here which more than make it worth visiting if in the area. Perfect Fingers (5.10a) and A Fine Line (5.12b) are the standouts but Cowboy Junkie (5.11c) is also worthy.

If coming from the vicinity of Upper Walt's Rocks the rugged terrain makes it easier to fix a line and rappel instead of scrambling down to the base.

Routes from left to right:

Purple Place (5.11b)
Step Function (5.11c R)
K2R (5.9)
A Fine Line (5.12b)
Perfect Fingers (5.10a)
Cowboy Junkie (5.11c)
