Description 

The tallest section of cliff, reached first by the trail. Features some two-pitch routes on the left side that start from the base, and some long single-pitch routes on the right side that start off a prominent ledge system.

Getting There 

When you reach the crag, turn right. For the left side routes (e.g., Local Knowledge), take a left-hand spur almost immediately to reach the cliff base. For the right side routes (e.g., Ed's Jam), continue on the main trail until you reach a left-hand spur that leads to a ramp. The ramp gains the prominent ledge (scramble, with maybe a 5.0 move).

The offwidth between Seizure and MX (directly below the rap' station for MX)is a really nice climb. It takes a variety of gear, but the meat of it is #5 and #6 size. It's around 5.8.
