Description Suggest change

Area between Starship Enterprise/ Waimea and the Hinterlands.

The trails at the base are suffering from some serious erosion issues due to their location on the mountain. Tread lightly!

The left(lower) end of Triple Corners holds most of the harder climbs whereas, the right side holds many 5.8-5.10 climbs that are worthwhile.

It isn't uncommon for beginners turned away from crowds at Vadar and Jimmy Cliff to make their way down to this area.

In the middle there is a 4th class gully(don't attempt when wet). Atop the gully you will find six or so quality climbs that would make for some nice pictures.

Getting There Suggest change

From The Starship Enterprise crag, walk to the right side and up, following the stone steps, getting you to the lower left side.
From Waimea, take the trail down below the China Beach area which drops you into the upper right Tripple Corners at the route Sunbowl.
