Shady when there is tree coverage, can by busy. Good collection of short overhanging routes(5.10a -5.12a) close to the parking lot.

Getting There 

From the parking lot walk the main trail maybe a minute or two, on your left you should see a short overhanging wall with a crack spliting it down the middle. There will be a path leading up to this wall. There is also a trail going directly to this wall from the parking lot.

The routes on this wall aren't listed in the proper L to R order (or R to L).

Hey Michael,

If you can tell me the correct order I will make the changes.

I just made some changes to the order of routes based upon the location descriptions. Unfortunately, the descriptions are not uniform. They begin with a left to right numbering, and then start referencing the routes from the right.

Let me know if there are still errors and how I can correct them.

Thank you,

PS: Anyone else familiar with the routes please comment on the correct route order.

Joe has the order listed. I couldn't do it off the top of my head otherwise I would have chimed in earlier. Thanks to you both.
