The rock face is roughly 70-110 feet tall. Faces ENE.
Top-Roping: To access the top of this cliff scramble up around the right side to the top of sector 4, then traverse south (some slabs) to the top of sector 3.
Name: David Talsky organized the real climbing / backcountry-skiing shop in Mammoth Lakes -- also the brilliant concept of the low-cost Monkey Bar climbing gym.
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.
Or perhaps follow the instructions for hiking from the north end of Parking to the northern right-hand sectors -- useful to reach Right side of sector bottom, if one member of the party wants to set up a top-rope anchor. First go S across the bottom of sector 4, then short steep diagonal uphill to reach sector 3.

Time + effort estimate: From south end of parking lot to the base of the left (S) side of this sector is about +130 vertical feet over 0.15 mile distance (+40m over 0.25km), so typical range of hiking times 6-12 minutes.
Time + effort estimate: From north end of parking lot to the base of the right (N) side of this sector is about +150 vertical feet over 0.2 mile distance (+45m over 0.32km), so typical range of hiking times 8-15 minutes.
