Very different type of climbing - tiny quartz crystals and small horizontals, with few big jugs and an actual fingercrack in a dihedral. Some of the more technical climbing in PK; routes from 5.8 to 5.12. Home to one of the few double-bolted anchors.

Getting There 

Go past Little Havana approx 50 feet. When you get to the base of a tall, very white, rather featureless face in a natural amphitheater, with a large flake in the middle of the wall, you've arrived.
