Mixed sun and shade


Getting There 

This area is one switch back below Estrellita and easy to get to from that area if you wander through the woods. Otherwise hike up a small scree slope from the switchback and drop into a 15 foot wide gully/slot with the routes on the right side.

Climbs a shallow dihedral and roofs to an upper headwall with mostly bolts for protection.
