Description 

The sandstone here is grippy and that means badass slopers are to be found here of course. In the Main Area you will find a bit of everything for all tastes. Overhangs and near roofs, crimps, pinches, vertical walls, aretes, and forearm scraping/teeth gritting sloperlicious topouts. You can pick your poison here.

Getting There 

Park in the first parking lot you come to. walk to the right of the rest station and get on the small trail going to the right and uphill. you will come to a low, long, spray painted boulder to your right. this is the first boulder you will find here.
