The premier section of crag for higher grade quality sport lines. The right-hand side has a few lines on poorer rock. The Bandits is one of the best routes in the area.
a Access - Although not a formal restriction, the area around Silent Spirit on the right-hand side of this wall frequently has ravens nesting early in the year. Please avoid this route if you see any nests.
