This is the huge white cliff ban on the left(North) of the road after you criss the first water crossing. It is long and quite tall....Looks like the walls of a fortress.

The main cliff is a choss pile but there are climbable areas in the vicinity of the Fortress.

Morning shade makes these cliffs nice for Summer morning ascents.

Be prepared for a long hike that can take up to 30 minutes.

Getting There 

After the 1st water crossing drive up the hill and park on the right side of the road and hike North about 1 mile.
