This Area Is A Working Farm MORE INFO >>>


The first large rock formation you see when walking into the crag. The name is inspired by similar outcrops in Greece that often had temples built on top of them. Only a few official routes and unbolted. DBB anchors on top, so someone needs to solo tortoise (5.4) to set up top ropes on the other routes.

Getting There 

First outcrop you see as you enter the crag, on top of a large hill.
