Area receives late morning sun. Climbs here are short, approximately 40', but fun. Rock is hard sandstone with some jugs, pinchers and heuecos. Climbs are directly off the trail.

Getting There 

Descend the dog walk or the southern access trail, and continue walking down canyon past the Hidden Peaks (Pricker and Monument). About 80 feet beyond The Basement, the cliff turns a corner. Fifty feet further in front of you stands the Town Square boulder. It forms a hallway with the main wall, The Belleville Wall. The first route you come to is "I Be Lichen It 10b" which is currently on the steep face you see by itself. As you walk around right, the 3 5.9s will come into view, and if you turn the next corner you'll find "Dances with Sharks"
