Seasonal Raptor Closure - Lifted MORE INFO >>>


This is a subarea created due to a complaint/suggestion to help reorganize the Bowling Alley area. This spot faces SSW and gets some sun although you can hide in the shade for some of the routes here due to the trees. This is essentially roadside cragging, but it can be quite convenient if you have a short window of time.

The two bolted lines above the road are on The Fin. The left one is named The Fin, and the right one is called Curb Service. Curb Service is in the database.
