Some of the "columns"
Another long, tall wall with good rock and the largest concentration of quality routes at the cliff. The lefthand side features the best steep jughauls, while the right side has some longer sustained, technical routes.
Just a short ways past the Teflon Wall. Look for large hanging columns.

Does anyone have a GPS coordinate to this place? In "getting here" it just leads you to a "Past rock 1" and then you click on Rock 1 and it says "To the left of Rock 2!" until you chase go down the rabbit hole.
Someone please post a GPS coordinate!
