This is an area below and to the Southeast of the Alamo Rock. It's a great area that doesn't see as much traffic I think mostly because of the 5 minute hike. The area is named after Rob Candelaria who put up a majority of the routes in the area. This area contains, the Sunshine Slab, the Cave Hang, the Lion's Den, The (Overhanging) Prow Rock, and a few others. The problems range from V0 to V7 or so, and a lot of them are very highball. There are a bunch of good lowballs, however, and a bunch of fun boulders to play around on as well. There is a good mix of sun and shade and a ton of good climbing!
Hike up to the the Alamo Rock and then head downhill and East. The boulders and walls are scattered along and around the Alamo Rock ridge.
