The climbing here is overhanging and requires a bit of endurance and power. This area also has the hardest route THE STING(5.13c).
To get here drive about 20 miles down the canyon to The lodge and then about another half a mile to a mile and park just past the first bridge where there is a pull out on the right, walk across the road and the trail is there, walk up the hill past several good sized boulders for about 7-8 minutes, Left like half a minute is Lord of the flies wall and right is Gregs Gully, about 20 minutes
