South facing wall located at the base of the Rabbit Ears Massif. There are several high quality trad routes on this wall. The rock tends to be good quality. There are 3 separate rappel routes which make the descent fairly easy. Bring two ropes to rappel.
Approach via Topp Hut rd. 30m-1h (are you in shape?) to reach the cliff. Follow the Topp Hut rd past the hut. Take a right turn at the first fork and continue up this rd until its end. From here, strike up a climber's trail which heads directly up the slope to the cliffs base.
