This is a shady area located beyond the lookout tower. It has a selection of 20 to 30 foot sport routes ranging from 5.8 to 5.12a. The rock is high quality, overhanging and very featured (there's even a giant tufa on one route). There is a feeling of seclusion you get from the unique approach, which includes walking through a mini cavern. It's well shaded so it could be a good place to visit on hot days and provides options if it's raining.
On the opposite side of the tower (downhill) from the trail that leads to the Pasillo area, there is a grassy area with a trail (possibly overgrown). It's in the south-east corner of the road loop. Follow this trail for about 30 meters until it leads into a cave (marked with a carabiner sign).
Walk through the cave (no headlamp needed) and you're there. Towards the back of the cave are the first few routes. Walk out the far end of the cave, turn the corner to the left, and you'll be at the main wall of this sector.
