Description 

This face is at the western base of westview overlooks, and thus gets afternoon sun. Relatively secluded area, with a few easy-moderate routes. On this face, the "real" climbing ends after ~50 feet, but you can continue on 3rd/2nd class terrain to Westview Overlook. The easiest way to return to the base of the slab from the top is to take a 2nd class "trail" which hugs the slab on the climber's left side.

Getting There 

The quickest approach is to park at Westview parking lot. Take the "blue trail" north, and after a few hundred feet cut off trail to the east (right). A few hundred feet of light bushwhacking/boulder hopping now lies between you and the base of the cliff.
