great short crag, nice place to climb in late afternoon, and most likily never see another person.

Getting There 

Park at the maidens cliff trail parking lot, follow the hiking trail to u come to a bridge. At this point turn right(little rock cairon) up an old trail/washout. Follow this trail to where it flatens out, follow carions to the stream where u can head up thru the boulderfield or skirt along the right side to the base of the cliff!
option 2 (hard way)
head up the trail to the base of barrettes slab, continue up the river bed on the left side of the cliff heading torward the verticals. follow the flat lands along the stream for another 5 mins until u see a boulder field. U can fire straight up through the field (route finding hard first time) or follow the stream up to the right side of the the cliff.

The talus field below the Outback Cliff has some potential for bouldering. Lot's of steep faces with climbable features. Bad landings but nothing a few pads couldn't fix. V0-VHard.

On finding the place:

The rock cairns are good and lead you directly to the cliff. It's the most obvious trail by far.

They deposit you at the slab in front of "Funny Farm" and "OCD"
