A bit more wild than some of the other areas on the ledge. This is a low angle 200 foot slab with a short 10 foot vertical headwall at the top. Some newer bolts and old pins can be found and any number of variations can be climbed up this slab.

Getting There 

Follow the climbers trail along the base of the cliff northeast past the The Dark Side to reach the base.
