Description 

The Second Tunnel is a somewhat misleading description for the group or routes found on the left (W) side of the road, ~100 yards past (N of) the second tunnel. This area receives sun for most of the morning, and begins getting shade in the mid-afternoon. Routes here are generally not as long, or as good as those across the river. This crag is very near the road, so expect to interact with the tourons.

Getting There 

About 100 yards after passing thru the second tunnel, park at a good turnout on the left side of the road. When parking, consider the possibility of rock fall. This crag is one of only two at Gilman that does not require a creek crossing.
