Seasonal Raptor Closures MORE INFO >>>


Two large boulders that form an "amphitheatre" just uphill from The Pebble Wall and North Rocks. The top of the left side boulder is a popular party spot. The right side holds a classic John Gill problem, The Gill Direct, and the sporty 1967 Pat Ament problem the Direct Route. The left side has several sporty old highballs facing south and the classic Mongolian Cosmonaut in a small notch up and left.

Getting There
