Description 

This is a reorganizational entry (thanks to Micah) to help facilitate the L->R sorting, because it "really doesn't make sense when you are going pretty much around an entire rock." This subarea will include routes from the East Side.


Getting There 

Park on the east side of the formation or the main parking area. From the main parking area, walk past North Gateway Rock to South Gateway just across the paved trail. Hike up established trails to get to your route.

Brian Wandzilak contemplates the frictiony moves on Cocaine.

Cocaine 5.10- 6a 18 VI+ E1 5a  CO : Colorado Springs : ... : East Side

Start left of Silver Spoon, trend up and left on mostly easy slab towards the low end of a funky horizontal corner--step over this corner. There isn't much, if any, psychological pro you can sink before the first pin. Once that pin is achieved, though, pro is adequate.
