A small obscure cliff behind chapel pond with two really nice face routes and a guarantee of not seeing another party. Quiet with a nice view and a comfy base.

From here bushwhack along a faint trail angling up and left until you end up in the tucked away cove where the winter route "Power Play" is. The martini wall is the short vertical wall with two bolts lines.

This is a hidden gem, and one of the best places to go on a sunny, hot day.

I always wade across (about 20', knee-deep) the base of Shipton's. Also know that you have to bushwhack across the forested slope below Chouinard's Gully to reach the Power Play amphitheater.
