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.

Getting There 

From the upper cluster "base camp," head west (toward town) along the base of the manatee, then climb up to the right into the corridor.
