This cliff reminds me of Inca Stone (AKA: Truth Or Consequences) it is pretty short for the most part, though a few are taller than others. The rock is mostly solid, but the climbing feels discontinuous. Though it is not a destination crag, it is a reasonable place to get some mileage, 30-50 feet at a time. It was far enough up the canyon so as to be dry on Tuesday night when it was raining in the lower sections and in Boulder.
