Description 

Possible new area. Did not see any signs of prior ascents.

Getting There 

This area is located just west of the Kings Creek Picnic area on Hwy 89 (Lassen Peak Hwy) above a pullout. You can see the cliff from the road. Scramble up to the base of the highest prow that has a large Fir tree at it's top. Scramble left and back right to reach the tree and setup a TR. Other route potential but no bolting so TR or sketchy Trad.
