Wall directly acrosss from the Supreme Wizard Formation on the West side of the gorge.
One of the coldest spots in the gorge.
Bushwack down to the river avoiding copious nettle. Find a sketchy pile of logs and avoid falling in the river. Belay Micro Pete from the river bed or scramble up to a ledge. Otherwise, 3rd class up and right to the other climbs which start off ledges.
Weather station 18.8 miles from here
