Description 

The first large rock amphitheater south of the weigh station, with grassy knolls and a gravel parking pullout. One of the more ancient free and aid climbing areas, with some particulary gross rock. it needs a lot of care and attention to bring the routes up to modern safety standards until that time, one can reexperience the hairball climbing days of not so long ago.

Getting There 

For the first 3 climbs, hike up scree and talus on the far left (west) side of the amphiheater to a short steep wall. To top-rope these 3 routes, find a faint rail around the corner to the west of this area.
