This small north-facing wall sits above Black Bluff - N. Face (Left Side) and features two very different but high-quality lines - Big Juan (5.9) a striking offwidth splitter and Green Planet (5.12a) a thin, technical outing which will keep you on your toes.

Getting There 

The easiest approach is to circle down to the base when still atop the crag but it can also be reached by hiking up past Black Bluff - West Face and cutting over to it.
