This area is home to a large number of routes from the 5.6 to 5.11b range. A large number of these routes are 2-5 pitches in length. A single 60M rope can be used to descend most routes. The multipitch routes start on the second tier, which is gained by the obvious gully. (4th class).
This area is directly across from the handicap parking for the sand dunes. Park next to the bathrooms in the large parking lot and hike south on the road for 200ft until you are directly across from the gully.
