Description

West Cliff is WSW-facing with afternoon sun, fairly good tree canopy shade in summer, up to 55-ft tall, and it's a shorter approach and more developed than the East Cliff.

Getting There

The approach hike down to the cliff is about 10 minutes.  Follow pink flagging and newly cut trail benches. Announce rockfall because portions of the trail traverses above climbers below.
