Description 

Climbs here have great landings and TONS of pockets! Mostly easier stuff with a few hard climbs here and there.

Best time to climb is late spring to fall. Winter gets a bit chilly so just make sure you're climbing in the sun.

Great rock - all volcanic tuff (similiar to what you find at the Happys/Sads)

Getting There 

In same cliff band as Maximum Joy Area, just keep going about .2 miles to find it.
