You can also get to these pair of routes by walking left from the far left Chocolate Factory. There is an old logging trail about 50 yards before you get to the actual cliff you take that turns into a trail. Probably about 6-8 min around the corner. It gets decent shade from the trees in the summer and has sun till about 2-3pm in the winter. Climbs are probably 10 degrees overhanging. Worth a trip over if you are on the left side and looking for something in the 11+/12- range.
