East Face/Guides Wall (Left side)
Looking down the first pitch of The Clincher.
Located on the east side of the mountain not too far off of the Looking Glass Trail. A couple of obscure walls seperated by a 4th class slab in between. The left side has a few good slabby routes up to 200' in height. It tends to drain water, so dry conditions are best.
Park at the Looking Glass Trailhead (the hiking trail to top). Walk about 15 minutes to a point at which a small footpath leads off to the right in the bend of a switchback. Follow this through the small boulderfield and up to the main wall located slightly higher in the woods (than the 4th class wall first encountered on the right).
