The Pool Area is located at the end of the canyon by the obvious pool at the base of the falls. This is a scenic spot and a popular summertime swimming/jumping hole. There is a nice mix of routes ranging from 5.9-5.12.

Getting There 

Follow the approach trail down into the canyon and hike past the Canyon Entrance, Free Tibet Sector, and the Roof Area to the pool at the base of falls.
