Description

Located at the SW end of the upper West slope. Not much to speak of but fine as it's along the way to other areas.

Getting There

There are a variety of approaches, perhaps the most enjoyable is from the North across the long sloping west side of the Main Canyon. Park as for Little West Canyon, and after 5 minutes hiking along the access trail and at the shallow rock lined drainage (directly west of the large erratic boulder) angle uphill to the south, staying on the west slope above the Little West Canyon. Pass the 4 pines and head along the slope below the upper west crag - about 30 minutes total approach time.

From the south end of the Little West Canyon head east as if heading towards the Main Canyon. The SW facing cliff is located on the left about 2/3rds of the way up the slope.
