Description

This area is the hard-body hangout.

If you can climb 5.12 come on over and try out Reckless Abandon (5.12a) and Tobacco Road (5.12b); they are the warm-ups.

If you can climb 5.13 bring a patient partner and be prepared to hangdog your way up Apollo Reed (5.13a) or Pod (5.13b)

Want a 5.14? Check out Quarryman (14b), Prohibition (14a/b), Still Life (14b), or the hardest route in the area, Superpod (14d). Or try your hand at the Full Metal Brisket Project, just right of Pod, and see if you can claim the FA of the last unsent independent line in the Coliseum!

For the non-mutants, there is also an awesome swimming area right where the Reckless Abandon belay ledge is.

Getting There

From the ladders follow the cliffline to climber's left past Gun Wall and you will find yourself under a large roof system, welcome.
