The 45 area’s central location and plethora of V0s and V1s makes it a good warm-up for the nearby Shamoo and Smiley areas. That said, the area does house two hard and classic lines worth getting on: Great White (V6) and Exhibit A (V8). It also has a host of moderates including the perennial favorite Fabulous (V4) and the slab Scarlet Lady (V4).
Take the trail beside the nature center into the forest. At first three-way trail junction go Right. At second three-way junction go Left (uphill) and watch for an obvious access trail on Right just behind a large tree. Take access trail into forest a short way and look for the large 45 degree boulder on Left.
