The majority of the climbs on the Main Face are moderate in nature, and since it faces South East it is sunny most of the day.

The cliff opposite an obvious rocky island (The Submarine)

To get to the base of the cliff either rappel from some rusty stakes on the cliff top or climb down the rightmost climb of the cliff (5.1)

Getting There 

The Main Face lies just south of the grassy quarry that you see from the parking lot.
