Description 

This is a reorganizational entry (thanks to Micah) to help facilitate the L->R sorting, because it "really doesn't make sense when you are going pretty much around an entire rock." This subarea will include routes from the West side.

Some of the rock on this face is Fountain Formation sandstone, like on P1 of West Point Crack, and is thus more solid than in much of The Garden.

This face has great views of Pike's Peak.

Getting There 

Park to the west of the formation. Hike up established trails to your route.
