DescriptionThe Left Hand area is a local favorite for moderate climbing. It is just to the right of the Sun Deck area and starts with Tony's Tango. The best time for this area is summer since the corner is shaded in the afternoon. The routes either top out at the chains at the top of Left Hand Crack or those at the top of Question of Balance . The most moderate line to the chains for Left Hand Crack and other face climbs is Tony's Tango, a moderate crack. Note that the face climbs work with a 50 meter rope, but just barely so be careful and use a cordalette at the top if you have only 50 meters. Also, always tie a stopper knot in the end of the rope (you always do right?). Question Of Balance chains can be reached for top-roping by going around right, up the hill and climbing a short 5.7 bit to gain the ledge.
