Description [Suggest Change]

This area is marked by the very striking sharp ridge on the left side of cannon. There are a few very good routes here the main event being the classic Whitney-Gillman Ridge and its many variations. at about 600' tall this is a smaller outing than those routes in the middle of Cannon Cliff.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

walk down the paved path below the cliff past the big block with the sign across form it and look for a cairn on the right. Follow a trail through wood and up in to the talus field to the base of the ridge.

NOTE: More details, and photos of the correct "Up-path", are given in the approach section for the Whitney Gilman climb itself.]
