I was wandering around the east side of Falls Creek today and couldn't help but to wonder about the climbing potential of the cliffs on the west side. It looks like there have been some ascents in the past, but that due to archeological interests, the climbing is now closed. Does anyone know more about the closure and if there would be any type of access work that could be done to open the area in the future? The rock just looks so good.

I heard there was a dead Navajo/Ute princess up there. You might potentially be able to walk in from the top to not get noticed, but it definitely is the cave with the sweet overhang where she is supposedly buried.
