This is the furthest left section of cliff, and the first encountered along the approach. Routes on the left half of the wall are super steep and bouldery, with generally only 2 or 3 hard moves, and lots of jugs. This cliff is very exposed, so be sure to use a stick clip on these routes. On the right side of this cliff section, routes are vertical to slabby, more moderate and technical.

Several routes in this area are named for the graffiti that adorn the route's base.

From Left to Right, routes are:
1. Pipsqueak, 5.13a
2. Volver de La Belle Epoque, 5.14b
3. Doug, 5.13a
4. Oktoberfest, 5.13b

Starting on the left side of the large feature just left of Scott, make the big moves up the steep face on increasingly worse holds until just below the lip, where you'll be faced with the last move of the crux: an explosive throw to a rounded jug. This is the hardest single move on the route and for some it will be low percentage and definitely harder if you're short.
