Description

This entire face is in the sun after 10:00 on most climbable days, and gets VERY hot in the summer. This is the most popular cliff at Q'emiln Park for moderate climbers.

Getting There

This is the first obvious cliff on your right as you descend the trail nearest to the toll booth. It will be on your immediate right as you go down the stone stairway.
