This area is home to some hard sport and trad lines. There's not much easy climbing here, but if 5.12+ trad or sport is your grade, you should check this area out. All of the lines are tall and striking in appearance.

Hyper-classic climb, in three parts. Start up a vertical face with climbing that is just a tiny bit tougher than you want it to be. Get to good jugs at the roof, and bust out through dead-horizontal, Obed-style flakes and huecos. Great shake spot just over the roof.
