From the guidebook:
(10 routes & variations from 5.9 to 5.12, 5 boulder problems from V0- to V0+ / primarily South facing)
Located below the main parking area, immediately left (downstream when facing the river) of the BBQ grill, are a series of Three Gray Faces, each one demarcated by an arete, and flanked by white, flaky, overhanging rock. Don't let the adjectives "white and flaky" dissuade you from missing out... these corners, aretes, and hangs combine for some good, and challenging climbing. Not to mention some of the longest routes at POB.

However, rarely will total access be impacted.

The break provides a big ledge stance to clip from enaabling one to get protected before really committing. A tiered series of buckets (5.10) leads to the lip where holds are less positive, and gravity starts to have its way.
