Description 

This area encompasses formations rising from the valley floor found on the right side of the Wonderland trail, past Ellsmere/Gilligan's Islands. Unlike the guide books, this area also includes the Land's End due to its proximity.

Getting There 

Hike in about about a mile, just past the large tailing Ellsmere formation.
