Description 

An easily accessed area containing several different sub-areas. Climbs are mostly one pitch climbs and run the full gamut of ratings.

Running Man is the classic, but don't forget Chrysler Crack a long 5.9 offwidth/squeeze Chimney.


Getting There 

Park at the Sandstone Quarry parking lot, a little way past the second pullout and, according to Swain, 2.7 miles along the loop road. Paths lead west, north and east to the sub-areas.
