The rock face is roughly 70-100 feet tall. Faces ENE.
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.
. . (previous name of this sector: 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.

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.
