An area new to the 10th edition of Lewis' guide about which he is quite enthusiastic, awarding by far the highest star average of any crag in the Sub Gorge. We did not find this enthusiasm entirely warranted, primarily because while the rock was among the most consistently bomber of any area in the entire ORG, the holds were predominantly slick slopers which made everything feel hard. However, this is a good cliff for mid range 10s and definitely worth a visit if the alternative is returning to the Great Wall yet again and impressing everybody by redpointing some hyper chalked trade route for the nth time.
See Lewis' guide. Also note the advisory in the Sub Gorge overview that getting to or from the SP from other Sub Gorge crags involves either reversing much of the approach or a fair amount of wading.
