This place is awesome - excpet that it is really polished and chalked up, it is definatley a popular climbing area. But steep and overhanging and a lot of fun. Another plus is that there is no aproach, you park your car, flake your rope, and begin to climb/belay.
Not a great amount under 7a, but once you're above this threshold, the climbing is phenomenal. Must be the highest concentration of classic 7c+-8b's in the country. Camping is picturesque if a bit pricey, you can fish for trout and there's always somewhere in the shade. What's not to like?
best limestone sport crag in the country. requires so many different skill sets.
