The Left Side Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Approach to The Riviera and The Bihedral.
This is a section of the Bihedral Area which has a set of distinct, newer climbs. It is typically approached differently than when going to the Bihedral or Riviera. It is organized as a distinct area for clarity. Many of the routes here were developed by Bob D'Antonio, Vaino Kodas, & Mike McGill. The routes here are generally protected with traditional gear. Note, this is distinct from the Left Side as described by Rolofson's Vol. 1 guide.
