This area surrounds the [prominent] cave feature higher up (and ~50 yards left) from the black hole area. There are endless problems and [possibilities] for problems, as well as some topropes. If you hike about 80 feet to the right of the cave itself, you can climb up 10 feet or so on blocks to a ledge system that disects the cliffs [horizontally]. If you walk to the left on this ledge, you will come accross two sets of bolts [from] which you can toprope. The first set you will find are 15 feet or so from where you came up and has [routes] from 5.4-5.11 possible, and the second set are directly above the cave and has several options in the 5.10-5.11+ range. There is also a really nice bouldering traverse that spans the entire area.
Getting There [Edit]
Park in the west end of the parking lot and follow the trail [straight] up the hill. You can see the cave from the road and the parking lot. There are several trails you can choose, just head [towards] the cave.
