Description 

This is the area containing a large majority of the climbing. This wall is South-facing and ranges from only 30 feet to 120 feet. Most routes are between 110-120.

Getting There 

The main trail will bring you to the base of this wall. You will see a large boulder (containing bolts) at the base of the wall giving a "hallway" feel to the belay area.

Philipp getting ready for the crux at the roof

Into the Eye of the Son 5.11+ 7a 24 VIII 24 E4 6a  CA : San Diego County : ... : Main Wall
This climb has it all. It starts with good feet and small sloping crimpers and works up and left into great finger locks in a diagonal crack but the feet disappear. Continue up onto thin face climbing with really athletic high-steps to the roof. Continue past roof to easier climbing, up and right to rap anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

Yes, the climb actuall starts on the right and works left up the diagonaling seam/crack. You can go up directly but the true flow is the seam/crack. I should know, I put it up-Martin Veillon.
As far as the AKA "In Your Eye" in the guidebook is most likely a slam at me personally for removing the many bolts several years ago that were added to many of my 1st ascents. I am back and will be removing them once more until the day I die and then my son and 4 grandsons take over-forever!!!
