Description 

This cliff is only about 400 yards from the lodge. The rock is not the best, but there are some routes worth doing.


Getting There 

Walk the PCT until reaching the slabs below the cliff. Go up the slabs.
Descent can be made at either end of the cliff; the easiest is by heading northwest.
