The central area is a very beautiful area with a good 5.9 warm-up and some stiff moderate routes. This has a few classics but not as much as the left side. The classics here are: Dark Special 5.10a, Jumping Jack Flash 5.10b, Light special 5.10c, 38 special 5.10c, Amazing Grace 5.11b, and Peyote Pump 5.11b.
From the left side you hike up to Gasoline ally then turn the corner and you will see the main area. It is so beautiful.
