Description 

Sunny and often sheltered from the wind, this side of the rock features a number of routes from 5.10 to 5.12 with the standout being Fire or Retire (5.10c), a tricky left-facing corner.

Getting There 

Park in a nearby turnout with an exhibit and follow a worn trail which turns into some easy scrambling as you near the base; the approach takes but a few minutes.
