The Colflesh area - named for Ernie Colflesh - is the first major area you come to when hiking in from the education center parking lot. It offers a great selection of problems ranging from V0 to V6. Area classics include Jenn Savage (V2), Body Snap (V4), Colflesh (V5). The problems average about ten feet in height with mostly good landings.
