Nice and sunny. Easy hiking in yet very secluded.3 cliffs, the main one has very limited routes (only 2 that I know of ), the clear cut has about 8 short lines and the Bacon Buttress has 2 routes.
We did about 4-5 other routes than the ones listed some tr and some lead.

Getting There 

Drive up Bear Notch about 3 miles from the Kanc to a bermed logging road on the left and a small paved pull-out just beyond.Hike up the road crossing a stream to a clearing (20 minutes) Main crag to th right-clear cut in front of you and Bacon Buttress 15 minutes beyond.

I deleted my comment so you can take out the second Bartlett section, Matt. Somehow I don't remember seeing this either. We need more pictures for John's entries. John, would you be able to sort the routes left to right so it is easier to figure them out. Are the three cliffs separate enough that making subsections make sense?
