Description 

The this area is host to many of the best of the best for the LRT... Some of my favorites are Mouth Of Wilson, Escape Form Alcatraz, Paladin, Ballad, Bicentennial Arete, SLS, Nancey, Cold As Ice, Kitten Mittens, Shang High... I feel like I could go on and on but I stop there and just let you see for yourself. Every time I walk down to the SLS Area I feel like a fat kid in the Willy Wonka factory.
