Possible new area. Did not see any signs of prior ascents.
This area is located just west of the Kings Creek Picnic area on Hwy 89 (Lassen Peak Hwy) above a pullout. You can see the cliff from the road. Scramble up to the base of the highest prow that has a large Fir tree at it's top. Scramble left and back right to reach the tree and setup a TR. Other route potential but no bolting so TR or sketchy Trad.
