Probably the most popular section of the whole cliff for the simple reason it is so accessible. The climbing isn't the best around, and many of the routes are quite polished, but it is possible to sample the 'big-air' atmosphere without getting too committed. The longer routes described here offer a more full-on Gorge experience. Guidebook page 236.
