Getting There [Edit]

As you are walking on the main trail from the parking lot, you will start to see the a big wall off to you right. You will be excited but resist the temptation to hike right to it. Keep hiking on your current trail for a bit. You will see a spine of rock off and to the left that is perpendicular to your current trail. Maybe 5 ft tall and 40ft long. The trail splits, go right. Continue up hill to the top of the trail. At the top (meaning that it goes down hill after that), in front of the large flat boulder(s), look right, you will see cairns and a u shaped groove trail through the talus field. At the top you will be walking on a thin trail through a carpet of vines. Once you get to the wall, turn left. The first climb with bolts is "wake and bake".

I updated the directions. If anyone wants me to add anything else I would be more than happy. I only made one visit to this cliff and am probably not the best person to update this page. Aug 20, 2014
