Description

A small wall with high quality stone. It's generally 35m tall or less. This shady cliff is home to some of the hardest pitches of ice in the canyon and has mixed potential. The ice routes are rare, sometimes not forming for many years.

As with all of the mixed climbing in Lee Vining, you're on granite. Expect to be climbing edges and cracks, and to dull your picks faster than in Canmore or Ouray.

Getting There

Follow the standard approach from the Poole Power Plant. As the name implies, this cliff is on the left side of the narrowest part of the canyon when approaching the more well-known ice climbs.

A short, low 5th class scramble on the far right can be used to access the top or descend.
