Description 

This is a small cliff that at as of 2014 contained only two climbs. It is located just a moments walk up and left of the Pivot Point trail. The cliff offers forest views with less people than offered by lower and upper Pivot point. Center Fire would be a good place to learn how to lead. With its close proximity to town and a short approach this rock may still be worth doing despite only having one good route.

Getting There 

Drive to mile 112.4 of the Seward Highway and park at the Pivot Point trail head. Walk a few feet up the trail and cut left to the small cliff located a few hundred feet through the forest.
