The Headstone area is south of the overlook tower. A great concentration of problems with good crack problems, powerful faces and fun aretes.

Getting There 

On way to Overlook Tower, veer south until you come around a good band of problems and you see the headstone boulder straight ahead. The Headstone is a large leaning block that sits on-top of a pedestal.
