This is the creatively named 200 foot, west-facing granite slab which is the focal point of the area. Almost all of the routes here are easy to moderate slabs with the odd crack thrown in for variety. Despite the easier ratings the climbs here tend to have an "old school" feel to them and may seem run-out to those unaccustomed to such routes - caveat emptor.
Park in the fee parking area and hike in along a paved service road to reach the obvious west-facing "big rock". Plan on a 10-15 minute approach from the parking area.

This is the small short crack to the left of the 2 other cracks/flakes on the top half of the slab. Its a finger/hand crack that is real easy to protect. Lead Boogaloo 5.8 or The Roof 5.9 to get up to the anchors, or another route like The Trough 5.5 to the top and then rap down and left to the anchors.
