Situated on the Silver Lake Mountain - Potter Mountain ridgeline, this cliff is laced with excellent, hard cracks. At first inspection the upper cracks appear inaccessible, but surprisingly many lines have been worked out in the last few years.

The major feature is the deep, C-shaped chimney that breaks the middle of the cliff.

Full information is here.

Getting There 

Park at the logging road 0.2 miles east of the Silver Lake Mountain Trailhead. Follow the road 15 minutes to a clearing. Continue straight across, then down through the woods to a wet area, then turn left and uphill, still following the logging road. The road diminishes to a good herd path that is followed across a stream, past a house-sized boulder, then up to the cliff.

There is some blue flagging that marks the trail.
