A good place to escape the crowds at the palace. There are three climbs here, including the classic Cirque de Poudre. The rock is much higher quality here than the rest of The Palace. Usually in the shade all day.
This is pretty confusing.... Use the same approach as Wall with a view, but fork to the right and follow the trail up a hill, passing a short climb on the left. There are a couple of options to pick from for the 4th class downclimbs off to the right. Pick whichever looks best, and head down. Once on the ground, look uphill and you will see a good face with three climbs.
