This area is situated a few yards from the west edge of the gorge. The bulk of the problems are situated on the impressive wave of rock that makes up The Alcove. This wall is a fine example of pocketed tuff, and provides a number of moderate problems all with a flat landing.

Other problems can be found on the nearby boulders.

Getting There 

From the parking area for The Dreamers continue north for 150 yards. Take the first right turn and drive along the narrow road for a little under 1/2 mile.

As the road starts to go downhill, you'll pass a fallen tree on your right continue for another 70 yards and park up on the right.

Cross the road and head east down a faint path until you reach the main wall of the area.
