Description Suggest change

This is the left and upper portion of Main Crag. It lies above an upward-angling trough that passes through a tunnel behind Totem Tower. The trough ultimately reaches the large notch that splits the top of Main Crag. Routes on the far left and those starting in the trough close to Totem Tower stay shaded in the morning.

Getting There Suggest change

Follow the approach trail to Main/West Crags. At the double cairns, continue heading up and left over a big down tree towards West Crag. In approximately 100 yards, you will be below a large "nose". This is The Shnoz. Head up to the cliff, and to reach routes to the right, follow the cairns heading up the trough.

To reach routes to the left, continue up the West Crag Trail and cut back to the west side of the cliff.
