The area with the highest concentration of routes. All these climbs stay dry in the rain, although several days of sustained rain can soak through the rock making it unclimbable. Some great, steep, moderate length sport routes grades 5.7 - 5.11b

Getting There 

The main track up from the parking lot takes you to the left end of the Colosseum.
