A west facing sector with a variety of routes, some on dark, and some on lighter colored limestone.

Around 18 routes, ranging in grade from 5b from 8b.

The lower portion of this sector is ground level, with fair staging area off the trail and mostly difficult routes. The upper deck is on a steeper slant, with the right side perched over the ground level and protection for the climber from pitching over the edge by a cable running at waist level across its length.

Getting There 

From the approach trail, above the power line tower, take the left hand fork in the trail. Go around the left side to the west facing aspect, and, volia, there's your Ei sector.
