Aaron Parlier on the FA of Inner Beauty (V4/5)


Allegory Boulder is the first boulder you reach when walking up the old fire road, and also the main, steep face forming the Labyrinth Cave feature (the tunnel). This is also home to a few of the most classic climbs in the area.

Getting There 

Walk up the fire road trail and the Allegory Boulder forms the dark tunnel with the steep face (left section of the tunnel).
