Description 

This cliff sits 450 north (upstream) of Boquet Canyon. Its south side is slabby while the west side facing the river offers the most technical route possibilities. The cliff was first documented for climbing in 2015 and hosts two routes with substantial opportunity for further development for top rope, sport and traditional lines.

Getting There 

Walk about 350 feet from the north end or 150 from the south end of the Shark Fin Cliff.
