Description

Home to some of the best hard technical routes and some new steeper hard lines. There are also a couple projects in waiting, notably Holey Wars and the extension to Piranha. Also home to some long 5.11's. Excellent rock.

Getting There

From the bottom of the central gully, hike north up the dirt road to the split at the toilet. Go left up the hill, contouring around the large talusd field on the left. When directly across from the Eldorado roof, look for a cairn on the left and a trail leading up to the cliff. The cliff is characterized by a long gray face on the left and a steep leaning wall on the right.
