This small, bizarre area is located behind Punch and Judy towers. At some points the alley is no more than 8 feet across. This area is home to some hard routes and gets afternoon shade.

Getting There 

Park as for Punch and Judy towers, which is the 2nd pullout downhill from Windy Point on the south side of the road. Walk down to the base of the towers and continue north/east. Walk back uphill on the far side of the tower and climb a short rope. You are now standing at the entrance to the alley. 7 min from the car.
