Description

The tallest section of cliff, reached first by the trail. Features some two-pitch routes on the left side that start from the base, and some long single-pitch routes on the right side that start off a prominent ledge system.
Seasonal Raptor Closure Details

Getting There

When you reach the crag, turn right. For the left side routes (e.g., Local Knowledge), take a left-hand spur almost immediately to reach the cliff base. For the right side routes (e.g., Ed's Jam), continue on the main trail until you reach a left-hand spur that leads to a ramp. The ramp gains the prominent ledge (scramble, with maybe a 5.0 move).

The route to the climbers left of Amigos and Ta Ta's is Janet's Route, 5.9. FA August 1995 by Jim Matthews and John Stanfield. There was never any bolt on the route and it ends at the anchors at the top of Ed's Jam. There is a bolt above the left side of the roof on Amigos and Ta Ta's.

Some locals call the OW left of MX, Fat Bastard, but that is definitely an unofficial name. No one seems to know who had the FA. I always thought it felt like 5.9, but I haven't been on it in a long time. Sep 17, 2015

we did the newly cleaned route on left side of Amigos and ta ta's. has bolt where you go on left side of roof, very good crack, maybe 5.9. Whoever is cleaning this give it a name here on MP.

I also climbed the OW left of MX, I would use 2 #6 if I had 2, or slide it up. There is a part that the only thing that worked for me was knee in, hand/fist stack, repeat. I would call it 5.9 Jul 27, 2015

The offwidth between Seizure and MX (directly below the rap' station for MX)is a really nice climb. It takes a variety of gear, but the meat of it is #5 and #6 size. It's around 5.8. May 19, 2015
