Description

This is an area below and to the Southeast of the Alamo Rock. It's a great area that doesn't see as much traffic I think mostly because of the 5 minute hike. The area is named after Rob Candelaria who put up a majority of the routes in the area. This area contains, the Sunshine Slab, the Cave Hang, the Lion's Den, The (Overhanging) Prow Rock, and a few others. The problems range from V0 to V7 or so, and a lot of them are very highball. There are a bunch of good lowballs, however, and a bunch of fun boulders to play around on as well. There is a good mix of sun and shade and a ton of good climbing!

Getting There

Hike up to the the Alamo Rock and then head downhill and East. The boulders and walls are scattered along and around the Alamo Rock ridge.
