Description

Very sunny area left of the Leaning Tower. Nice variety of sport routes 5.10 to 5.13.
All the routes in this area should be equipped with leaver biners (as well as the routes to the left) please do not take them.

Getting There

Walk a couple hundred feet beyond the Leaning Tower and look for a trail to your right heading up into the trees and the base of the cliff.
