Description 

This tall, featured face is frequently swarmed by climbers who want to warm up or challenge themselves on the fun problems. At times, pads will cover the landing zone from one end of the boulder to the other and can resemble a traffic jam. The stream-side of the boulder holds two challenging aretes and a desperate sit-start linkup, while the steeper back of the boulder has some good entry level moderates.

Getting There 

Just north of the Zoo. Look for the tall face with a flake in the middle of it.

Why is this an individual area when it's literally 5 feet away from the zoo?
