  • Description 

    The West-most section of the cliff with a high concentration of developed routes though difficult to navigate and many have been lost to history. The earliest climbers spent their time here. Jack, Jill, Outward Bound, Eye-In-The-Sky, and White Birch are just a few of the dozen or so routes in this area.

    Check out Tough Schist or the Tough Schist app on Rakkup for more extensive info.

    Getting There 

    If taking the timberline approach: As soon as you can see the cliff band on your left, cross the stream and head toward the cliff and hike along it until you find your route.

    If taking the Sugar Shack approach: From the clearing below the cliff, trend left and up to the base of the cliff. You can either follow the stream until you are at the left end of the cliff and punch up to it or head up through the Middle Cliff approach and hike along the cliff to the left.
