Crag just north of the radio tower in the Bluffs

Anyone know something about this little wall? If you take the trail (see pics) north from the radio tower, you come to the foot of this impressive looking crag.

That is Skunk Hollow. It is in Squamish Select.

gotta funnel some of that traffic to lesser crags somehow ...
I doubt Skunk Hollow would be a candidate "thin out the crowd" crag. Not with grading at the 11d/12b level.

Nighthawk Moss to the east of radio tower is a nice thin out crag though. 5.7 to 5.10 with a southeast exposure. An older Barley cliff though with the 2 link Barley special anchors though.

topo

Never visited that cliff. Do the routes ever get any traffic? AFAIK it's outside the park on private land, unfortunately.

I've climbed there a few times, routes are fun but a bit short, good range of grades up to 5.11, mix of sport and trad. Last time I was there things were starting to turn a bit green, but all still very climbable. All top-ropeable with easy access to the anchors. Sunny and south-facing, fast-drying, great early spring crag with a nice warm-up hike to get there.
