This small area just east of Ryan Campground is home to a good collection of crack and face routes on variable quality rock. Approaches are fairly easy and yet often enought to escape the crowds closer to the road.
Park in a large paved turnout midway between Ryan Campground and Hall of Horrors/Saddle Rocks.
