This face is west facing and is cool in the morning but can get warm on summer days. This is most popular area of the crag due to its concentration of high quality moderates and the superclassic Hydrotube 5.8

Getting There 

Follow the trail to the right around the base of the rock until you see an unmistakable "tube"-like formation. 5 minutes
