This quiet, shaded, north-facing cliff offers a handfull of routes to provide a cool climbing opportunity on even the hottest days of summer. The cliff receives almost no sun and while the routes are still relatively new and may have some "crispness" to them, most will appreciate the beautiful and airy setting where they sit.
When hiking up the Narrows trail you first come to the Front Porch, followed by the climb, Geeks in Tight Shoes, sitting by itself on the right. Continue up the trail another couple minutes to where a faint trail, marked by a cairn, heads up and left in a gully where a couple of large trees have recently fallen. The Industrial Wall is approached up this gully. Near the top of the gully, the trail heads left and up a steep spine of dirt and rock before meeting the wall where a fixed rope provides security on the airy ledge while belaying and a place to clip off your gear.

If you don't mind some dirty holds and flakey rock here and there, you might enjoy some of the climbs here. The movement is good, and maybe someday the routes will cleanup, but for now there is plenty of "funk" on the climbs here.
