Shorter, sharper climbs across the street from the Dark Side. Defined by a big amphitheater directly across the street from the Dark Side. Most of the routes are concentrated around the eastern edge of the Amphitheater, with a few just to the left of the arete that forms the edge of the amphitheater proper.

Getting There 

Get on 9th Street and drive north as per the directions to the Dark Side.
