The first area to the right of the approach trail and one of the easiest areas to find. The first boulder is a huge roof with few hold and few routes. The Orb is just behind that boulder with tons of problems. has a great guide book for this place

Getting There 

When the main trail makes a 90 degree turn to the left, take a right to the obvious cluster of boulders.
