Description

A large wall looming directly over a crystal blue mountain lake. The scenery can't be beat, but the climbing is largely undeveloped and even established routes can be dirty and lichen-covered still. The season is limited as the snow only melts off the trail in May or June and comes back again in September.

Getting There

Head up the Reed Lakes trail to Lower Reed Lake (roughly a two to three hour hike, depending on your speed). If you've never been there before, don't make the mistake of thinking the little beaver ponds by the Nugget Boulder are Lower Reed, keep going another mile or two up the steep stuff. Leave the trail just as it passes the lake and head to your right to the obvious group of walls looming over the lake. The High Dive is the biggest section of rock, with a massive concavity at its base forming a huge roof in the middle of the wall. As of 2010 it is largely undeveloped.
