Description 

This newest additon to the Quarry greatly expands the moderate route offerings with many routes 5.10 and under. Routes here tend to be vertical to slightly overhanging in nature, fairly short and to the point with many featuring "interesting" holds.

Due to it's south-facing location and shelter from the wind this is the warmest spot in the Quarry - perfect for those cold winter days.

Getting There 

Just left of the Agony Arch Area on the south face of the Quarry.

Did anyone find a purple, Black Diamond harness in this area in December 2014 or early 2015?

If it is hotter than 75 degrees do yourself a favor and avoid this place.
It gets direct sunlight that cooks the rock and more importantly the epoxy.
Brutal, come in by sunrise or sunset in the summer or on a cold breezy/cloudy day in the winter.
