Description 

Sitting on the eastern shoulder of Elk Ridge is a smaller cliff, compared to Balcony Rock and Balcony Jr., with some nice routes and bouldering. The cliff is mostly of interest to climbers who are visiting Balcony Rock or Balcony Jr. and are seeking another set of short routes with easy top rope setup. The cliff is about 30 feet tall or shorter, with numerous juggy lines and one really nice right leaning crack. It faces south.

Getting There 

This area is slightly higher in elevation from Balcony Jr. and directly uphill from Balcony Rock. This area sits directly uphill of Balcony Rock, above the power line clearing. See the map for location relative to Balcony Rock and Balcony Jr.
