Description

This cliff is the host of several great routes, containing anything from slabs to corners to roofs. Almost all of the climbs are bolted, even some cracks (yikes, when did this become acceptable at index???)

Getting There

Take the trail from the country up some steep switchbacks past the boards on the trail, and a giant boulder. Take a left at an obvious fork(upper wall trail goes right), then two more lefts at subsequent forks.
