Description 

With taller pillars, a darker coating of lichen, and shade that lasts later into the day, the main face doesn't seem quite as friendly as the Orange Sunshine area. Here too, though, there are some great climbs, including the Tieton's classic 5.9, Inca Roads. There are also a few dirty offwidth sandbags you'll never miss climbing.


Getting There 

Hike to the cliff. Continue past the Orange Sunshine area and scramble over the nose of rock.
