Lowest, northernmost (up-river) section of cliff. The tallest of the routes are found here. The base of the cliff is undercut making the first move from the ground a real stopper if you value your shins. Rock stacks were used for FA on some routes. Please leave them or improve on them, but do not remove.
Walk north along lower tier or follow big horn sheep trail along upper tier to where the lower wall ends and scramble down on the north end of the crag. Be careful to not knock rocks off the top when doing this.
