BETA PHOTO: The Far Side, view from on top of the main Rock.


Climb is in two sections with a ledge rest in the middle before pulling back onto the rock above. You can stem the first few moves.


Located above the main rock to the left just left of Cinnamon Bear.


Bolts to chains. You can reach the anchor to top rope by scrambling around left, then bouldering up the East side of the formation.

Face climbing on fairly small sharp edges. bottom section and top section are separated by a large horizontal crack / ledge. I climbed it on top rope and then on lead. Total of 4 bolts with a 2 bolt anchor above. You are a fair distance above the second bolt before reaching the third bolt (1st bolt above the ledge). A fall from the third bolt before clipping it would probably put you pretty close to the ground. I had fun on it.
