This area features a small concave curve in the wall below the largest and tallest section of the cliff. The routes here climb well featured rock on pockets, cobbles, and ripples. Due to the angle of the hill, it is hard to get a good grasp of the climbing here. However once you pull onto the wall, you will realize that what appear to be slabbier below is much steeper than it looks. The pillar containing Big Red Button is a great example. The original thought was that Big would be a "5.6 warm up". A far cry from the truth when after it was bolted it checked in at a much stiffer 5.11b.
Aim for the obvious recess just below mid-level of the crag.
