The Kung-Fu Area is characterized by a combination of large blocks and enclosed caves. These blocks are located at the mouth of the canyon, just before it narrows, giving it more time in the sun. The majority of the climbs in this area are in the V0 - V3 range.

Getting There 

From the lower parking lot this is the first area you reach at the top of the talus slope.
