This area begins with a few climbs to the left of the actual cove and continues through it to the other side. One has to pass under a large roof to access the double cracks which start the routes on the furthest right. About 30 feet up, a long narrow ledge runs through this area. There is a nice black face and then a small cove with short, hard, crack lines and then under a huge roof and around to another nice face.

Getting There 

This is right of Crystal Aretes.
