Paradise for technical 5.11 slab climbing. The must-do route here is David Tidwell's three pitch The Imaginator (5.11c). There are also a harder routes of similar quality by Jerry Handren called Dominatrix (5.12b), and Young Marble Giants (5.12d).
Getting There [Edit]
Traverse along the base of the cliff toward the left, passing some bolted projects, up a steep slope, down, and then up again until you come to an impressive and distinct area of Gray rock. This is the Central Slab Area.
