Underworld Area - Mission Gorge
A kind of "secret" area away from the crowds. This area sees little traffic as it is off the main trail. A good spot for some solitude on a busy day at The Gorge.
A faint trail leads down to it from between Lunch Rock and Vawter's Dihedral area. The climbs are pretty much right below Vawter's Dihedral.

The anchor bolts for the Under World have all been smashed. You can build a gear anchor but you will have to belay from the top.

There is still one anchor at the underworld that is awaiting hanger replacement. There is a difference between bolts and hangers.
Update - now they're all good.

"kinda secret area, sees less traffic" aka BEWARE of loose rock! Took a pretty serious tumble wrecking both my ankles and left wrist in the process whilst scrambling across the top of the formation to set up an top rope solo anchor.
