DescriptionLocated just right of the (m) Taboo Area which makes this the farthest right portion of the Quarry's main face, and while quite tall in spots it tapers off at the far right side as it merges into the surrounding hillside.
Routes here tend to be fairly long (up to 22 bolts) and range in difficulty from 5.10a to 5.13b, although the majority are in the 5.12-5.13 range due to the sustained nature of the climbing.
Recommended routes here include Shwazzle Dazzle (5.11c), Hand Me Down (5.12a), Toothless Tweaker (5.12c), Ghetto Fabulous (5.12c/d), Hands of Time (5.13a), Fractional Envy (5.13a) and Tweaker (5.13b).
