Amphitheater's Backside.

Description 

This is an awesome shaded area behind the Amphitheater with a few sweet routes. It's much more secluded in comparison to the neighboring Red Wall or the Monkey Traverse. There are a few steep moderates, a V7/8 traverse, and some really fun climbing.


Getting There 

Walk up behind the amphitheater and go a little further west.
