The lowers was bolted by the Army for training and they painted numbers under the routes. The bolting is excessive to a climber and some of the routes can be climbed with mixed gear.It doesn't offer views like the Main Face, but it is better protected during windy winter days. It offers some decent climbs and is worth checking out. The routes are numbered left to right.
Once you reach the large clearing (Heli pad) on the way up to the main face there will be a trail with a sign to the right, follow it to the lowers.
