At the bottom of the Original Wall, right of Land of New Beginnings, is a series of massive roofs. Climbs have been established on the faces below the roofs as well as skirting the roofs.

Getting There 

Cross the footbridge, and take five or six steps on the trail before taking a left into the trees to find a discreet climbers’ trail to the right of the large scree field. The trail switchbacks up the hillside through the trees. After crossing a scree field the trail splits, cutting left and back through the scree field to go to the Uber Wall, the Jungle Gym, and the Middle Ground. Going straight at the trail junction takes you to the rest of the areas such as the Headwall, Original Overhangs, and the Slab area.
