2 things about this area.

1 - Rhoads, you should change the name of this spot to "Fire Rhoad Bluff". Just seems better than Cliff Band North of Fire Road.

2 - This area doesn't see a ton of sun so it can tend to stay wet a little longer than other areas. As a result it still has some loose holds so climb softly and pay attention.

I'm also assuming that most of these have been done previously by Paul or Pete De Salvo. If anyone knows proper names then just let me know and I'll happily change them.
