This is the first granite wall at the top of Sinks. It is split by a huge corridor. The cliff is tiered and most climbs are on the lower lever. They are mostly slightly overhanging on good quality stone.

Getting There 

Park at Bruces bridge. Walk about a furlong up the trail and then scramble up a talus slope to the base of the cliff.
