BETA PHOTO: Hailes Cliff South


A few huge horizontal roofs with no climbs on them surrounding a small cave in the middle of the cliff. Under and around the roofs there are some nice routes on vertical walls ranging from just a few bolts to up to 90 feet.

Getting There 

Take the left at the fork after the squeeze and continue down the trail. Follow the trail until you come to a 90 degree corner on the cliff that leads to the climbs and the cave.
