DescriptionSlab section which is about 600 feet (170 meters) right (east) from the Good Book wall .
Many short routes mainly for top-roping. Top anchor can be set up with a static line from trees above the cliff.
photos of route lines:
Top Rope access: Could set up top-ropes by scrambling around the right (East) end, or by climbing the route EE Bond at the left (West) end of this sector.
This sector tends to be sheltered from winds from the West or NorthWest.
warning: The rock on and around this cliff has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.
. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2016. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).
Getting ThereFollow the directions to get to the Good Book wall , then walk right (roughly east) about 600 feet (170 meters).
Or perhaps shorter is to follow the directions to the Beard boulder, then scramble up the steep slope above it, then when it gets gentler, angle up left-ward to reach the cliff.
