Description 

First pillar seperate from the main wall. Popular, fun moderates, most notably the aretes which are great for beginners and some ok trad leads. As with all the pillars, the toughest routes tend to be in the center of the faces, where you can't lean over and grab the edge of the pillar itself.

Getting There 

Walk through the jungle and avoid the puddles and glass.

The only route I climbed here was the sport route dead center on the Main Wall-side. Which one is this?
