This has a few nice, overhanging problems on it. There is a good traverse problem, Fountain Lip Traverse, V3, and a good overhang problem, Cave Direct, V6.

If you want, you can adopt this subarea.

Getting There 

This is at the north end of the Grocery Store Wall. As you walk down the trail, the first boulder you will come to will be the Stage Boulder, and down and to the right of that is the cave.

Climbed all of the problems in the Fountain Lip area. There is beta and are some comical moments in the video. All of the ratings seem pretty true. Rocket Ship beta is at 4:20, Fountain Lip Traverse is at 5:20, and Cave Direct is at 6:00. We also did a couple variations on Fountainebleau Boulder.
