A nice concentration of long mostly sport climbs.
Where the arroyo meets the rim, look for a trail going right. Look for the black chain anchor of the Gauntlet on the rim after about 200 yards. Anchors on Bust a Move are also pretty visible. 65M rope required to rap The Gauntlet, though 4 of the routes can be done with a 60M rope if approached from below as they don’t go to the rim.
