Description

This cliff was discovered and exploited in 2005. When viewed from Eagle Rock, it is the third cliff to the left.  It doesn't look like much from a distance. Looks are deceiving.....
You had better like roofs if you venture here. All routes were put in ground up.

Getting There

From Eagle, go uphill to right. When road forks, go left. Go downhill for a good ways. At base of first real uphill, look for entrance to forest on left, near a rock tower. Trail is passable now for first time since the fire.
