Classic Cliff is located at the lower end of Upper Dream Canyon. Several routes were established here in 2004 by Vaino Kodas and Mary Zuvela. Most are sport routes, but one requires some gear in addition to the bolts.
Classic Cliff is located at the lower end of Upper Dream Canyon. It can be reached by hiking downstream from Werner's Legacy about 100 yards or by descending a steep trail in a grassy gully directly north of the wall. It is located at a bend in the creek with a large dead tree. Another approach is from Boulder Canyon, as for the Wall of Winter Warmth, continuing upstream another 200 yards or so. It is across the creek and a little upstream from the Serenity Spire. Most of the left side of the wall has the creek flowing under it, but the routes on the middle and right are easily accessible. The cliff is roughly west-facing. The river noise can make communication difficult, so be prepared, particularly on Grace Poole and Jane Eyre.
