Description

This is the prominent large, mostly slabby face you see to the north of the Kanc as you drive just east of the hairpin turn. It is about a third of the way across the Kanc coming from Lincoln. South facing and secluded, with reasonable to great rock quality.

Getting There

Drive East on route 112 from Lincoln. Park at a wide pull-off near a Forest Service sign that says ‘No camping or fires except at campgrounds’. This is located just downhill from where the road comes closest to the rock. Walk through the small clearing and look for an opening by a large rock. [2016 NOTE: See photo; look for birch logs marking start of the path.] Go through the 'enchanted forest' until you see double ribbons on a couple of trees. Follow ribbons right on a faint trail to the base of the wall. Allow about 30 minutes from the road. Note - The way in may or may not be clear. Be prepared for some thick bushwhacking. [2016 Note: Several blow-downs but path is fairly clear to follow.]
