This section of cliff has a number of moderate multi-pitch routes. Many of them are left-facing corners that are more recognizeable to find once you've walked past them, then look back at them.
From the trail in, this is the first set of routes you come to along the cliff. The very first thing you see is the massive Kansas City roof.
