Description 

The Lower Cliff sits down and left from The Hive. Despite the fact that it's about 20-25 feet tall and over 100 feet long, it might be difficult to find until you're right on it.

The Lower Cliff has some potential for cool problems. There's a steep face/boulder on the left, a less steep wall in the middle, and the Smear Tactics boulder on the right. There are also a few boulders right below the cliff that might have potential.


Getting There 

The best way to access the cliff is to walk downhill and to the left from the Fun Boulder. It's probably less than 100 feet from the Fun Boulder. If you're at the Holds Boulder, the cliff is right below you, and you can access by scrambling down a rock crevasse.
