Description Suggest change

This area is right where the approach trail ends. As a result, it is probably now the most popular section along the cliffs. The name is misleading, because while many routes are slightly overhanging, there are no "radical overhangs" and there are also numerous less-than vertical climbs. A number of good 10s and 11s lie in wait here.

Getting There Suggest change

Ascend the trail from the parking lots. This is the area basically from near where the trail intersects the cliff band and continues left.

Per Brent Kelly: the GPS coordinates are: 39.768331, -105.216142.
