South facing crag and mostly overhanging. Gets good shade in the mornings and has a nice view across to Red Tail and Skaha Lake.
Contains some high quality overhung 5.12 sport climbs with a couple 5.11 climbs thrown in the mix.

Getting There 

From Another Buttress in The Shady Valley, turn right up a trail when going towards the Lower Red Tail. The crag is directly accross the small valley from Another Buttress. Alternatively from the loop trail and Peach Butress you can continue along and follow the crest of the rocky hill up, turn left near the top when you see the crag towards Red Tail.
