Mostly shady and occasionaly damp, this area provides some of Jackson Falls's finest climbing and one of the hardest climbs. This area is a bit of an approach, but well worth it.
To get here is a bit of a haul by most Jackson Falls standard. The two ways are to head either down the access roap and to the right (toward the Gallery) and walk for quite some time until you hit the Railroad. Turn right and follow that until the crag is on your right. The other way is to follow the trail on the top of the cliffline until the trail takes you to a third class scramble to the rear entrance of the area.
