Getting There 

This climbing area is located uphill and north of the Fin. Walk down the La Luz trail and cross the talus above the Fin (north & east), cross the old La Luz Trail and find the ridge of rock. This rock, averaging perhaps 170 feet in height, is also downhill and right of Ratís Rock. Completed routes are noted left to right. One 60m rope is adequate for all the raps from bolted anchors and chains. There are no sport routes, all routes require gear. All bolts were hand drilled, painted and kept to a safe minimum.

This is a really great area, and it is truly not a sport area!! Lots of quality routes however there is some loose rock, especially at the top. I hope people don't go here to much!!
