I saw this area caught fire today somehow. Very sad. It will likely be closed tomorrow.

Watch for rockfall in this area, especially near the backside of Cereal Buttress near Instant Surreal. There have been big microwave sized rocks that have come down near climbers.

This is a beautiful, secluded area .... The wall is most impressive and has superb rock quality. The climbing is adventurous and aesthetic. A hidden gem!!
