Description Suggest change

Close to the parking lot "pile" that has the classic arete "Jaws" on it.

Getting There Suggest change

From the parking lot, walk straight back into a "most obvious" corridor. If you picked the right one, Jaws will be on your left in 100'. It's the "must do" arete... If you picked the wrong corridor you are probably close... There are also a number of unnamed toprope climbs on either side of this block; these can be set up by taking an easy scramble to the top from the north (parking lot) end.

The longer wall opposite the Jaws Block is West Side Rock. This wall continues a good ways on past the Holiday Block area and includes both trad and sport routes.
