Description 

First formation you hit on your hike in. Separate from the main cliff, this wall offers up sport climbs of all grades up to two pitches in length. On top it is a nice spot to eat lunch.


Getting There 

Hike in. Head down to the wall before you reach the main wall. Rap into all the routes.
