Description

This small cirque is just to the south of the Monolith Cirque. A wonderful clean wall that gets afternoon sun can be seen as you walk down the NF trail.This is a very pleasant environment to spend some time and in some ways it is the opposite of the Cirque of the Moon.

Getting There

The best approach is on the North Fork trail from Dickinson Park outside of Lander. You will need to obtain a permit to cross the reservation. The approach into the cirque is steep but short. Once into the cirque access to the walls is simple.
