This is the steeper and more impressive side of Campfire Crag with darker (i.e. better) rock than the south side, but it still has some pretty bad routes on it too - so be warned. Easily reached by a short hike around the east end of the formation, this is the place to go when it's a bit warmer, as it is shady most of the day.
Make a right (if driving into Indian Cove) at the intersection just past Pixie Rock and park in any of several spots near the south face of the formation. A 2-3 minute hike around the right side of the south face reaches the north face.
