Situated right at ground level this area offers an easy approach and a wide range of climbing styles and difficulties. Many of the climbs here feature a steep section midway but almost all finish with a bit of slab climbing to keep you on your toes. This area is also home to a fair number of quality crack climbs for additional diversion.

Routes here range from 5.7 to 5.13a with most in the 5.11+ to 5.12+ range. Popular climbs include Romp (5.10c), Gulp Swallow (5.10d), Vertical Vee (5.11d), New Directions (5.12a), Microquarry (5.12c) and Synergy (5.12d).
