DescriptionHow do I know that im at the Central Section?.... Well, as with all the areas, you will notice lots of glass and litter, but there are better ways to tell such as the most popular "boulder" problem on the cliff.... Right in the middle of the cliff, you will notice a blank face with an almost too perfect starting hold, leading up to well...almost nothing...then a good ledge.... This is what I call "Face To Face" though it goes by other names as well.... Lets say the center section is everything right of the Beehive Overhang over to the Devil 5.9+...
Another nice route in this area climbs a crack up a smooth slab to a small, pine tree this is easy to find and a really great route.... Beware the crux is going through the upper overlap above the crack....
More nice, moderate climbing can be found here as well as a few more challenging routes.... Beware of glass in holds and falling bottles....
