Left of the Main Slab, the slope is divided into several tiers of cliff and slab. The largest of these lies above smaller tiers, separated from them by sloped, wooded ledges; this is the Scout-About Slab. On the far left lies a separate, small crag, which tapers off leftward into a short, very steep wall with a very low-angled slab above it. This is the Left Blockade. Currently, the routes toward the right end of this formation, right of a large, right-facing corner with a left-rising diagonal crack in it. This feature is the most identifiable one on the crag, and is thus used for locating other routes. This corner lies about 100 meters left of the Main Slab.

Getting There 

Follow the directions as for the Waterfall Wall, then walk left 100m, looking for the large right-facing corner with the left-rising diagonal crack leading from the inside corner 10' up to the outside of the corner.
