Getting There 

From the car bridge main access to the climbing ... after going NW across the bridge, turn right and walk a long ways NE along the little river ... past the Picnic Wall, past the footbridge which spans the little river.
After the footbridge there is a section with no bolts visible on the cliff. Then a single bolt line in a wide open book with three big chockstones in the bottom of its central crack. Then another section with no bolts. Then a big nose/pillar with three low-near-the-ground "practice" anchors (two bolts each) below a big roof -- that's near the left end of Philosophy Wall.

. (If reach a chain-link fence blocking the way, then you're near the Dem Bones wall -- so then turn around and go back SW about 50 yards and look up NW from the river to see the bolts and anchors for Philosophy wall).

I created this sector page just to help people understand the layout of the areas when they're walking around looking for things. And so someone who wants to provide information or comments about a specific route will have an area to attach it to.

I got the name of this sector from another website. If it's not right, let's get it fixed here.

I hope someone with better local knowledge than me will take over this page -- and I will gladly hand off my "ownership" of this page any time a M.P. administrator wants to make that happen.
