Description 

This is a reorganizational entry (thanks to Micah) to help facilitate the L->R sorting, because it "really doesn't make sense when you are going pretty much around an entire rock." This subarea will include routes from the East Side.

Getting There 

Park on the east side of the formation or the main parking area. From the main parking area, walk past North Gateway Rock to South Gateway just across the paved trail. Hike up established trails to get to your route.

Silver Spooon climbs past a few bolts and drilled angles up the slab and then traverses underneath the roof to the gully. This felt pretty hard for 5.5 slab (I thought it was harder than the Finger Ramp 5.7), and the landing is bad if you fall before the first bolt, but after that it protects pretty well.
