Description 

The 3 sport climbs here are seldom visited. They are quality though so check them out. This area is sunny so it is best to avoid it in the summer. Lots of bouldering around here too. There are also 2 more roped climbs south of Tool Buttress. You basically will have to follow the bluff line and look for the anchors on these if you want to find them (5.7 and 5.9).

Tool and Poo Choo are two of the best routes at the ranch! These seem to get overlooked for some reason, get on 'em!
