This is a pretty cool and relatively underdeveloped area of the lake. Much more potential here for new problems to go up. Mostly talus fields with some trees tossed in for good measure.

Getting There 

From the north shore pick up the Tumbled Rocks Trail and start hiking south. Walk past the Nancy Jo bench and look on the right for a patch of grass. Walk up here and start exploring.

I hiked around above this area yesterday and found some pretty cool lines that need to get cleaned up.
