DescriptionSignificant cliff in the low part of this crag.
The rock face is roughly 70-100 feet tall. Faces ENE.
As of October 2016, there are no publicly-known climbing routes in this sector.
Top-Roping: To access the top of this cliff scramble up around the right side. There are some trees on the broad ledge. The top of the main wall of this sector is lower than you might guess while hiking/scrambling up: class 3-4 if go the most direct way. Class 2-3 if first hike up higher and perhaps traverse farther south, then go down back northeast.
Name: for the Mono County Search and Rescue (SAR) team.
. . (old name: The June Lake Loop has long been recognized as a little visit to Switzerland. "Bramois" is a quartzite crag in Switzerland. Pronounce "Bramois" using the French language of western Switzerland - roughly as ... brah-mwah).
warning: The rock in this sector has not been climbed much yet, and some of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.
Getting Therehiking approach: As of 2016 it's easier to park at the north end (especially if want to set up for top-roping), and first follow the instructions on the Silver Lake area description page for reaching northern left-hand sectors, especially sector 4. After the main junction below sector 7 Melchsee at the foot of the "Dent", turn Left and go up hill, south past below a scrambling section, then downhill to the bottom of sector 4.

Sector 4 has the lowest base of any of the cliffs, so if you notice a lower rock face nearby, you are not at sector 4.

Time + effort estimate: From north end of parking lot to the base of this sector is about +125 vertical feet over 0.2 mile distance (+40m over 0.28km), so typical range of hiking times 7-14 minutes.
