This is the smaller cliff located out right (east) of the main Ophir Wall. This is home to a few good single pitch routes. It is west-facing, so it is cooler early and sunnier later in the day.
From the Ophir Wall parking area, enter the boulderfields below the wall and traverse to the far right staying relatively low. It takes approximately 15 minutes.
