Getting there ...
For this sector, no big advantage to driving as high as possible (rougher and curvier) on the dirt access road before parking.

The two "Fitness Center" climbs are completely separate from the main face. In a narrow slot to the left (north) of the main face, also north of the (wider) descent gully.
