Sunny in the morning, this really nice cliff is dry most of the year and can be good climbing in the afternoon in the summer.

Really big, very hard to miss. Looks like a pyramid with a nice white roof guarding the top. Not many climbs make it to the true top of the wall as the wall is more than 45 meters high at points!

Good number of moderate routes from 5.8 to 5.11b, with most routes falling in the high 10s to low 11s.

Walk into the canyon as per every other cliff and this part of the first cliffs but after the smaller "school of rock" area. Beware, the water gets higher and higher during the melt season!

Getting There 

Walk into the cliff and look left. The big cliff is your cliff. There are basically two sections, the better one being approached from the climber's right. Those lead to a ledge which has the belays for the climbs "Cold Case" to "Sarantium"

Climbing Season
