Description Suggest change

The First Overlook section holds the tallest section of cliff in the area as well as the majority of the established bouldering, along with a whole lot more potential for hard and easy lines. With unclimbed cliffs up to 80 feet there is still much to be done here. Most of the cliff's climbing is concentrated on the climbers left side, as the right side is more broken and chossy. There are a few lines on the right, however, that could prove to be very hard and good FAs

Getting There Suggest change

Take Burns Road to either of the Grand Lakes Reserve Parking lots(There are two, both of which are on opposite sides of the trail). Park in the second/lower lot and take the North Ridge Trail for about a mile, in which you'll come to the first of several large overlooks, about a 15-20 minute approach. When you arrive at the large overlook, hike down around the left side to access the base of the cliff, as it stands all established routes are on the far left side of the wall.

Most of the bouldering is on a smaller portion of the cliff band above the base, although there is some around the base as well.
