Description Suggest change

The cluster of boulders before you get the the "Main Area". Many classics including the namesake "Sternum" and some popular climbs "Face in the Crowd" and "Grimace" hidden in a corridor.  

Getting There Suggest change

Hike past the Front Area of boulders staying on the well travelled path that runs parallel with the golf course. The trail passes a cluster that resides in a gulley/ depression and crosses over a seasonal creek. Hike past this cluster up the hill on the well traveled path. The next cluster of boulders includes some of the first problems of this sub-area reached along the main trail. Some of these problems include "Crack of Doom", "Ribcage", "Sternum" and "Ace of Spades".
