It's likely few climber go there, but it may affect the adverturous.
Note: watch out for rattlesnakes; they're around, so don't do anything stupid.
Be advised that whatever guidebook you use, it's sometimes very frustrating to find the route that you're looking for; don't hesitate to ask other people around about what route they're doing. Top rope access is via an easy trail at the far right side of this area or via a steep class 4 chimney scramble between Interface and Protection from The Virus (in the big cove in the middle of this area).
Addendum: also note that as this area has become popular, a number of the more popular routes have gotten polished due to repeated ascents to the point where the old ratings may feel sandbagged.
