Description 

Many worthwhile trad climbs in the moderate range. Bring a spider wand.

Posion Ivy like you won't believe, come prepared to bushwhack thru PI. There is a trail along the bottom of the cliff, but it is so rarely traveled that PI has taken over.
I advise using clifftop rappel sites to access this cliff. Avoid climbing down Miner's Ladders and going west that is the thick of the posion ivy.

That said, This cliff has many worthwhile routes including the uber-classic climb-out at 5.0 Jacob's Ladder.


Getting There 

Hike along top of cliff west of Miner's ladders and east of Honeymooner's that is Kline Wall. Jacob's ladder is right about in the middle of the area.

The routes here look pretty good and the area from Jacob's ladder to Big Gulp was relatively poison ivy free. The Mungolian wall that is closer to miners ladders had routes that looked pretty nice, but were either wet or had poison ivy at the base. I was here pretty early season, and it probably gets worse.
