Description 

Exposed rock that gets morning and afternoon sun. Is commonly grouped with the Amphitheatre area in guidebooks, but has different access.

Getting There 

After the 4th bridge, cross the cross the creek as if trying to reach Patriots groove area. Look for a blank low angle slab just to the left of an area with more foliage. At normal water levels, the climb begins just right of where there is water passing under the slab.
