Description Suggest change

Located on the sunny side of the bluff, this area features long and/or exposed airy aretes, and faces. It looks like there is the possibility for a few long trad lines as well.

Getting There Suggest change

Hike up the standard approach trail from the parking area and stay on the east side of the bluff. The South Faces start at the south east corner of the bluff. 

Alternatively, you can approach this by hiking through the climbing areas on the west face until you curve around the bluff to reach the south east corner.
