This is one of the more 'remote' crags at the Pecos, although its only 100 feet from the road. A mandatory creek crossing keeps the riffraff at bay. Due to the relatively vegetated nature of the crag base, it's possible for the belayer to feel as though they are truly in the wilderness.

This cliff faces NE, so is shady most of the time. There are biting ants in the area, so you might want to have real shoes to put on after the river crossing.

All of these routes would get an extra star if they weren't so short.

Getting There 

From the pullout nearest Catherdral Rock, ford the river. The left (SE) most section of the Bleachers is visible from the road, and offers three routes (Stir it Up, Edgy and Baby Face). The right (NW) section of cliff is hidden behind the tall pines, and requires a bit of an approach after the wetness. The river crossing can be treacherous for your feet if you have weak princess-skin like me.
