Mecca Wall and Killer Pillar Rock Climbing
This is a small crag just east of Lower Grotto Wall that hosts a few 1 and 2 pitch routes. Although this area doesn't get climbed a lot due to the close proximity and more-established routes of Grotto Wall and Outrageous Overhangs, it can be worth a day away from those areas on busy weekends.
