Description 

This Crag has it all...sunny, shady, crowed and secluded. Just pick the day of the week and the time of day then live with you get. It's a nice Crag and worth a stop by on a Tuesday! The Rock is Granite and there is over 70 routes all routes can be top roped off hangers on top. This is a inner city crag with all the down falls that come with a crag like this. BAD PEOPLE DO BAD THINGS.

Getting There 

From I-90 take exit 283 B (Freya St/Thor St) go North on Freya St, drive 2.4 mi. Take a right on Euclid Ave. and drive 1.9 mi. Euclid will turn into E. Upriver Dr. Look for John H. Shields Park on the left just after the road begins following the Spokane River.
