The most popular area at the Bend, especially around Pure Joy (5.10c), where there are a dozen or so quality routes packed into a concentrated area. Some routes on the left are accessed from a ledge system.

Morning shade, comes into the sun by mid-afternoon.


Getting There 

Turn right upon reaching the crag and hike up the hill. To reach the Pure Joy area, take the final left-hand spur.
