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...

Stay on the trail past the hive and the short little Foggy Mountain Fin. The trail will promptly make a sharp turn to the left. as you round the corner you will be in the SLS Area.
