Description 

A nice 'cave' area with 6 overhung routes with lots of tufas.



Getting There 

Located up behind the Spires and between the Dihedrals area and the base of Time Wave Zero. To get there follow the Pink Dot trail from Hobo Camp up past the Spires, over the small saddle onto the nice trail. Scramble up the small slab continue on the trail that goes to The Surf Bowl. The approach takes about 25 to 35 minutes.
