This cliff looks like it has potential for some pretty hard trad routes namely involving the huge cave and the roof at the top. There are also a bunch of easy looking lines.

As of 10/2016, this area is very dirty. Spider webs and lichen dominate the rock and rocks getting knocked loose is definitely a danger.

P.S. If any information here is inaccurate and you know something more, feel free to let me know. As of right now all route information is being made up as it happens and first ascents are my best guess. Cheers

Getting There 

Take the Upper Cascades Trail (i.e do not cross any bridges), walk until you get to the mile marker (a rock with a bench next to it) then continue walking on the upper trail for about 10 minutes and you will see the huge overhanging rock. If you get to the falls you have gone to far.
