Upper Reef

Description 

This is quite the added hike if you thought it was a long way to the Rocket Reef....a good 20-30 minutes further albeit via a fairly good deer trail. Steep in places. Southwest facing. More of the Grandeur Peak quality limestone, though this may even be a tad chossier?


Getting There 

As for Rocket Reef and keep on hiking up the ridge line to the next band of rock.

Featured Route For Upper Reef
I'm guessing this is the 'triangle shaped' buttress.  Here viewed from the Granduer west face trail- perhaps least traumatic approach?
