Description

The Main Amphitheater is the stunning section of tall, steep rock in the middle of The Waterfall area. Essentially this wall starts just past The Sword and Bladerunner on the left and wraps around to the right margins at Black and Tan and Lord Humongous. This section includes the black falls, and is the first section of the cliff that you come face to face with if you wisely stuck to the gulley on the approach.

During the summer months a thick patch of poison ivy lines the base of the wall from the route Could Be Worse on the left to Black in the Day on the right.
