Looking South from Jeff's World Trailhead


This is wilderness sport climbing at its best! This is a 75' cliff that is pretty much in the middle of nowhere. At the steepest point the cliff overhangs about 25'. It is nicely featured and clean granite for this area.

Getting There 

Follow the directions to the Secret Lake trail. Boat past that trailhead and keep going into David lake. Go to the far north bay. Just after going through a little narrows where a peninsula comes in from the east on the north end, park the boat on the west side of the bay. (I will post a beta picture of the trailhead)

If you miss the trail, you can bushwhack your way west and you will run into the main cliff band. Follow it north or south to the climbing area.

Trail head corridinates:
N48 23.63'
W92 24.03'
