Description 

This is the long steep slab reachable by walking up the path left of the Height-of-Land Wall. The left side is bounded by a chossy right-facing corner (which separates it from the Blueberry Ledge area); to the right, a right-rising ledge runs along the base of the cliff up to the Jammer Wall Ledge of the Upper South Corner Cliffs.
The main face, on the left, is 200' tall, streaked vertically with dark brown and light orange. The dark rock streaks are dirty and often wet.

Getting There 

Hike to the Height-of-Land Wall, then up along its left edge. Skirt the right edge of the Blueberry Ledges cliff to reach the base near its left end.

A pumpy and committing crux, interesting climbing for the entire way.Once you've reached the large ledge 15' up, move up a sloping rounded ramp to a stance under the midpoint of a horizontal crack out of reach above.
