Another Foster Falls gem with a mix of climbs for everyone: ranging from 5.9 - 12c there is something here for everyone in your party. Just past the Paradox Wall, it is a great alternative if you're looking to change it up a bit. One of the few areas in Foster Falls with baby multi-pitch lines. 60M rope at minimum, and at least 6-12 draws required for most climbs.

Routes right to left:

Secret Passage 12a
Half Man 10c
Half Beast 11a (starts on ledge above Half Man - same bolt line)
  • (Half Man and Half Beast make a small multi-pitch climb)

Golden Girl 10c
Prison of the Mind 12c (starts on ledge above and to the right of Golden Girl) *(GG and PoM make a small multi-pitch climb)

Everybody Knows Fire 9
Finding the Trust 10d
The Process 12a
Wolf Boy 11+

Chestnutt's Route 12a

Getting There 

Use the climbers second access point (one with the legit staircase) on the rim trail. From here walk down the trail to the base of the cliff line. If you are facing up were the staircase is located, take a left and follow the trail down the cliff line. You will pass the Red Light District in a few minutes. Keep walking along the trail were you will reach a waterfall (seasonal - winter). Gaze intimately into the flowing water for a bit; then continue over the stream and along the trail hugging the cliff line. In about 5 mins, you will walk past the soon to be ionic "Holy War (5.9)" on the Wall of Useless Conflict - from here you are about 5 mins from the wall.
5 mins from "Holy War"
10 mins from Waterfall (seasonal)

Look for a small cave at the base of the cliff line (20ft deep, 5ft height) once you see the cave, the climb just to the right of it will be Everybody Knows Fire (5.9). From were you are standing, you are in the middle of the Dog Boy Village district.
