This is a tall blocky overhanging wall with a few sport and trad routes. It makes a horse shoe like shape giving it the name.

Getting There 

Take Auld road twords the summit of Mount Erie. The pull off is the last pull off on the right before the road reaches the summit. Located on a left bend in the road. Park here and hike straight toward the sound. When you reach the cliff head right along the rim until you reach a third class scramble to the base. This is the bottom of the powerline wall. Follow this cliff to the cliffs right until a 3rd class trail goes down on the right. The first wall on the right is the Cirque. Total approach 15 min all downhill.
