Description

This is the side seen from the lookout on hwy 64 near the turnoff. A good area during the summer as it is higher elevation than the surrounding areas and tends to be less hot and buggy. There is often a breeze as well, but the wall does get a little afternoon sun. There are also a number of ice routes here in the winter.

Getting There

From parking area, locate the trail just to the right of the pit toilets. Follow this trail about 15 minutes to a subtle ridge where the trail goes rightward. Continue a few hundred yards to where a trail goes left up a short hill. From here the main trail goes right, but you will want to go straight down the gully on steep ground. At the bottom move right (skiers right) to the Catwalk area.
