Description Suggest change

The Oven hosts a nice selection of 5.9-5.12 routes and sees relatively little traffic, despite it's proximity to the main approach. As the name suggests, this area bakes in the sun and is great for colder days.

Getting There Suggest change

From the notch ("North Pass") on the main approach, head right (instead of left towards the Center Wall/Center Cave). The Oven is the first wall you'll come upon with a concentration of routes.
