The sickle crack really isnt in the playground, its on a boulder off by itself, downhill from american gypsy. The playground is all of the boulders on the flat ground around painted boulder, and on the downslope to the south. It is bounded by the vomitorium on the east, ricks ramp to the south, the road to the north and painted boulder to the west. If Fallen gypsy and sickle crack feel left out they can be in the playground too.

A new trail network on the south slope of the playground has opened up much new route potential. Oct 1, 2011
