Description 

The North end of the West Bluff is complicated and woody terrain, kind of like "East of the Quarry" but with much easier access. The West Bluff trail runs above it, and the Tumbled Rocks trail runs below it.

North of "Dead Tree Wall" and south of "Hollywood and Vines" there are several little towers and pinnacles scattered up and down the slope - if you enjoy balancing on top of spikes of rock, this is your opportunity!

Getting There 

The shortest approaches are from the North Shore of Devils Lake, using the West Bluff trail.
