Large Roof Area Rock Climbing
At the crux. Photo by Chris Deal.
This area lies at the very end of "The Dark Side" of the bluff. Although there is some steep climbing here, most of the routes are vertical to slabby. There's definitely a couple classics worth checking out. A large block sits on the ground that created the large triangle shaped roof. There's an old home-made bolt in the block that was placed after it fell.
Follow the main trail up the cement stairs from the parking lot. Keep right and hike up to the top. At the top of the trail hang a right at the "T" and keep going past the "Anadonia" area." Follow the trail all the way to the end of the "The Dark Side." Easily recognized by the large triangle shaped roof.

Fun route with a great and intense variety of moves that starts on the face to the left of Dumpster Does Duffles, the very last route on the bluff. It's a good idea to stick clip the first bolt. A strenuous lieback with fingertips on the face leads you to a sandy ledge where you can regain your composure. Then launch into the strange sequence of moves to get you up the bulge and into the corner, launch up and left to the sharp tooth, and pull up onto easier territory. Overall, a winner.
