Description

Climbs along the West Bluff Trail just south and just north of Prospect Point. Arbitrarily, this area starts left-to-right with Son of Great Chimney. Climbs around the corner to the left (Dance of Ghost Psamead, etc) are included in Big Toe.

Getting There

At the intersection of the Fire Road and the West Bluff Trail. Climbs are right off the trail towards the Lake. As you stand on Prospect Point you look to your left at the Lost Face overhangs, and you look to your right at the Great Chimney buttress.
