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 from it and look for a path on the right about 7-8 min. from the parking lot. Currently ( 2022) there’s an old tree across the correct path. Follow the 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.]
