Description 

Popular due to it's convenience and a wealth of great problems concentrated in a relatively small area. A good trail exists through the heart of the area and leads further afield to Shangri-La .

Popular problems here include Frank's Roof (V3), Morgan Arete (V3), Da Way (V3 R), Black Moon (V3 R), Blacktop (V4), Frank's Problem (V4), Green Hornet (V5), Gluttony (V8), Harry Pothead (V8) and Angus (V9).

Getting There 

Hike past the Ranger Station, the trail junction and the turn-off for the Flash Gordon Area and continue along the trail over several small hills until the trail flattens out again and the boulders come into view on the right. Check the individual problems for more detailed approach information.
