Description 

The First group of routes you hit from the Nuttal Approach.

This cliff has overhanging parts which seep along the base by the trail. This area continues all the way to the other part past the obvious power line above (bummer).

The Travisty (5.13c/d) is the classic here with a controversial past.

Getting There 

Follow direction to Nuttal, then take the trail down the hill through the Poison Ivy and you'll happen past Garbage Wall and into the Brain.
