Description 

This area is a good place to stop if the other areas are over run with climbers. "The Crux" (5.5) can offer the new leader a good bit of fun (though it can be awkward in places), with good pro placements.

Anchors are generally off the boulders behind the King & Queen's Seat block. I have also seen people use gear in the top flake as well.
Some of the climbs here can be wet after a good rain.

Getting There 

This is the First area you come to (on your right) if hiking in from the upper parking lot. Located behind and below the King & Queen's Seat, on the west side of the south-facing wall.

Access to the base of the climbs descends down the steep erosion trail to the right of the rocks, cutting back to the cliff face at your best opportunity.

Climbing Season

For the Rocks State Park area.
