The Main Area consists of all the boulders found at the base of the hill, from the Millennium Falcon Boulder on the eastern end to the Cave boulder and the large Easy Flake Boulder to the West. The rest of the problems are found on the Ridge, the 20-30 foot cliff band and accompanying boulder at the top of the hill. Many good moderate problems are found in Main Area, notably The Millennium Falcon, an area classic.
