Description

Located in and around the 4 stacked large roofs in the amphitheater which are the most obvious feature on the Biscuit. Morning shade. Best times to climb are in the morning and around sunset when the swifts come out. The rightmost 4 routes (Swifting to Biscuiteer) are not really in the amphitheater and get early sun but are also more breezy.

Unsorted routes are 2nd pitches (more to come!).

The big stash hole at the base sometimes has a giant rattlesnake in it, but not recently. I also recently found a rattlesnake in a different hole ten feet off the ground. Beware.
