Description

This is the obvious spill-off area which has formed a large amphitheater. Overhanging sport climbs on positive holds is the standard here. At first glance, I thought it was loose choss, but it is surprisingly good basalt. This is a very beautiful spot, please respect it and tread lightly. STICK CLIP IS A MUST! All routes require a pre-cliped first bolt and Consider a Helmet.
