Description 

Fantastic sustained climbing! Some super fun and challenging slab routes can be found here, often with an interesting horizontal crack near the base. Great classic lines with interesting cruxes, a wonderful setting, and the length to back them up. These 80 to 100+ routes are mostly sport bolted with sometimes optional (I guess it is always optional) or required gear in places.


Getting There 

North (right) of the South America Wall, below and south of The Beach. The left most route is Learn to Swim.
