This section contains routes beginning just after The Traverse and continuing to Bulletin Board. Once you drop down towards the bouldery gully below the Whale's Head, you are in Music Hall. After crossing The Traverse and stepping up onto the large and slightly tilted platform, Long's Arete rises directly overhead. Passing beneath this and over the "monobridge," Long Lane proper cuts up into the shady, dank cavernous area. Directly in front of you are a mix of easy to intermediate sport climbs of varying lengths.
Approach from North Parking Area at Ho-Mei Village. Follow shoreline trail through Puffer's Pass and past The Clocktower. Rock-hop and scramble until you get to The Traverse. Once you have crossed this, you have arrived at Long Lane. Approach time ~20 minutes.
