Description 

This area includes the classic, steep face of the Tomb Raider boulder, as well as the adjacent Ship's Prow cave just to the left.

Getting There 

From the walk-down, go slightly downhill and left, until you hit the signed "Rattlesnake Trail." Take a right, and walk for a couple minutes until you hit the super-obvious Tomb Raider boulder, with its distinctive downhill-facing, 70 foot long, 45 degree overhanging face. There are a couple flared hand/fist crack splitters on the Tomb Raider face as well, which definitely go, but I have not added them to the routes list.
