Description

The is the "main", most popular section of Animal World that you arrive at first. It contains many of the classics such as Animation and Free Willie, and with a wide range of grades, well-bolted routes, and great sun exposure all year, this is a deservedly crowded place.

Getting There

Park in the same pullout as the Boulderado (8.5 miles up the canyon, the large parking is on the left just after a long sweeping right turn in the road), walk up the road past the Boulderado cliff, and find the trail at the "Slow Vehicles Stay Left" sign. Follow a trail straight up the hill until it branches right (look for cairns) above the Boulderado. Cross easy slabs, and go across level-ish terrain until you get to the routes.
