This is center court for Bliss and well worth a visit for any aspiring boulderer. Dozens of lines are to be had, across every difficulty level. But the V4 - V7 climber will find themselves well served on the areas stellar moderates.

Noteable lines include Gunslinger V5, and the awesome Bliss Arete V4.
