Description 

This is the area containing a large majority of the climbing. This wall is South-facing and ranges from only 30 feet to 120 feet. Most routes are between 110-120.


Getting There 

The main trail will bring you to the base of this wall. You will see a large boulder (containing bolts) at the base of the wall giving a "hallway" feel to the belay area.

Philipp finding that footwork before exiting the dihedral.

Icarus 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ E3 5c  CA : San Diego County : ... : Main Wall
Located on the main wall in the prominent left-facing dihedral, this route is a feel-good climb with the lay-back finger crack (a good amount of these holds are slopers). Save some energy because the crux section is at the top, after you traverse right out of the dihedral, you're high-stepping on crimpers to reach the anchor. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

Yes, the climb actuall starts on the right and works left up the diagonaling seam/crack. You can go up directly but the true flow is the seam/crack. I should know, I put it up-Martin Veillon.
As far as the AKA "In Your Eye" in the guidebook is most likely a slam at me personally for removing the many bolts several years ago that were added to many of my 1st ascents. I am back and will be removing them once more until the day I die and then my son and 4 grandsons take over-forever!!!
