Description

This area is the hard-body hangout.

If you can climb mid 5.12 come on over and try out Reckless Abandon (5.12b) and Tobacco Road (5.12a); 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)

If you want a 5.14? Check out Quarryman, Still Life, or the hardest route in the area, Superpod. There are still a few unsent mega-hard projects here too.

And for the rest of the non-mutants, there is also an awesome not-crowded 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.
