The Light Side at Upper Casparis has some of the best lines in the area. The rock here can be bigger grain, similar to Coopers, but the lines are fantastically pure and hard. There are many many established climbs here, mostly done by Tim Anderson and crew back in the 2000's. Listed here are just a very small portion of the classics.

Getting There 

After walking up the steep quad trail, walk another 50 years down the trail to where it splits as you see the first couple boulders. To the right is the Dark Side, to the left is the Light. Stay at approx the same elevation as you walk and you will find boulder after boulder.
