This area offers some good chance for shade and good sun as well. The rock quality is good but many of the problems are short. However, the lines are still worth checking out and a few classics lay hidden in this private feeling nook. If you are in the area, a must do is Prince Charles (V7-V8). Enjoy!!

Getting There 

There are a few ways to find this area but the easiest way to locate the area is to follow the same approach as you would if you were heading to the "Land of The Slabs."

Follow the Sisters trail to the land of the slabs... once in the general area you want to head up hill (East) into a skinny bottle neck type pass.

This area converges with "The Land Of The Slabs" area. Then continues over the pass and includes the East facing slopes. From these slopes you can see the Sisters formation to your North and you can look down towards the "Child's Play" boulder as well as view the "Eggs" area form the East slopes of "The Pass."
