A nice, sheltered corridor running north-south, with a few excellent problems. The ones in the corridor itself are pretty much all hard - V6 and up (except apparently there's a V3+ hiding in the middle - see problem description by LeeAB). There are several closely-spaced easy/moderate problems at the north exit of the corridor, on the west side.
