Description

This area is the ridge that makes the southern boundary of the lake. The faces are all parallel to the dam. They are shaded and can be wet for many hours after a hard rain. There are 7 established routes ranging from 5.5 to 5.11a bolted with two bolt anchors. Sandstone. 

Getting There

Park at the base of the dam and walk up the stairs along the east side of the dam. This will take you to the Lake Shore trail. Continue east on this trail and within 100 yards you will see 35 to 40 foot rock faces to your right. Many of these routes are bolted, but the bolts appear to be pretty rusty (and bolting is not allowed so will be hard to replace them anytime soon). This area ends in another 100 yards when you see a cave in the wall.
