This is one of the last areas in the canyon, where it curves west and the east rim (now facing south) becomes the north rim. It's a great place to check out on crowded weekends because most climbers get too tired before they make it this far. It offers high easy warm-up/highballs and a few fun moderates. As it faces south, it can be nice and warm on those cool winter days.
Beyond the Slight Inducement Area, where the trail bends west. After you pass a small boulder on the right of the trail, The Wayko Boulder will be the next rock you come to, hugging the trail on the right side. The Top Gun Boulders are also found on the right side of the trail, behind and left of the Wayko Boulder, just uphill in a grouping of four big boulders sitting side-by-side, outcrop style.
