This area offers some more East Animas classic multi-pitch lines. This area offers some great moderates such as Apple Cider, and Texas Sucks. Just because they are moderate climbs doesn't mean leave your head game at home, these routes offer some scary moments that will make you scream out "MAN I LOVE THIS SPORT!!!"

Getting There 

Keep going down the trail past the waterfall and the 420 cave.

I added a new route just after you come out of the cave. I called it the Matrix. I redpointed it and Chris Barlow followed. We think it is about 13b. Bouldery start to a good rest to more boulder problems to the anchor. You can by pass the crux by using the tree behind you. It is a fun route.
