This is an interesting and remote feeling area on the west side of the ridge from The Booskstore.

Getting There 

Park as for the Bookstore. Hike up to the main area and scramble around the left end of the lower face. Continue around the south to the west side of the ridge. Hike along the base of the west side till you reach the obvious longer cliffs (10 minute hike from The Bookstore). It is also possible to head west from the top of the Bookstore routes to reach the base of Ridgeback.
