Description

Some more of High cliff's finest.

Getting There

Start with directions for West Side. Upon reaching the barrier boulders turn South and follow the Indian Mound trail to its intersection with the Lime-Kiln Trail. This intersection will be made obvious by the area's namesake stairway leading to the base of the cliff.

Just North of the stairway lies small buttress with some quality climbing, and just to the South a freestanding tower supplies some excellent climbing as well.
