Remarkably well-shaded yet open belay area; it's a great spot for summer climbing. Another favorite spot for guides/groups, this area has a good range of climbing from 5.4 to some of the hardest and tallest routes in PK.
Exit far end of upper lot, follow carriage road through field and past stream, to large clearing. Straight ahead, you will see an obvious footpath leading towards the cliff. Follow footpath and bear left once past the trees, trending left towards a natural amphitheater. When you reach the base of a narrow, detached pillar (Scrotum Pole), you've arrived. The Drive In area is to the left of Scrotum Pole, characterized by the large slabs of rock that provide reasonably comfortable seats to watch the fun.
