This sector doesn't have as many quality climbing as the other sectors, with more broken rock than the other sectors, but it has some good climbing nonetheless, especially towards the left end. Most of the sector is in the shade in the morning, so it is a good place to warm-up/climb during the mornings of the warmer months. There are about 40 routes here with grades ranging from (stiff) 6b+ to 8c+.

Getting There 

This sector is just past the sector Face Sud. It is probably best to just go to the face sud and then follow the cliffline to this sector, although there are other difficult to explain small trails that lead there. It takes about 15-20 minutes to get there from the parking.

Climbing Season

With big holds on slightly overhanging rock, this is a great warm-up route for the other harder routes in the area. There is a cruxy boulder problem towards the top, so save your energy....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
