Description 

Home to the best roofs in the park, including the area classic "PeeWee's". This area gets more sun and has fewer climbers due to the harrowing approach for the anchors.

To get to the anchors: The safest approach to the anchors is to lead "Easy Nose" on the eastern-most side, which is nicely protected by four bolts up to a set of rappel chains.

On the topo map found at the park visitor center this area contains routes from the "First Overhang" and "Side Canyons" area.

Getting There 

Follow the trail from the parking lot down the stairs. Take a left at the fork and it will be the first large tower you come to on your right. You can recognize it by the narrow cave that cuts through the middle running East-West.
