Description

A good warm up spot that also holds some classic harder problems. Kung-Fu Grip side stays in the shade, whereas the Rotator Cuff side gets full sun all day.

Getting There

Walk up the main approach trail for the west side boulders. Continue straight on the old jeep trail at the fork near the top and continue to the Gateway Boulders (two large boulders on both sides of the road) and hang a left. This is actually 2 large boulders that are leaning against one another creating a 15' long cave.
