This is a section of Sport Park near Surprising Crag. It is overhanging, hence the name. It has about 6-7 routes here in the advanced range of difficulty.
This is in the general area of Surprising Crag and Sport Park, which lies on the S side of the road. Park as for Sport Park, cross the creek, head left or E. Look for a slightly-overhanging wall low. 3-5 minute approach. You can access it from Surprising Crag, but that is more difficult.
