This is the largest and most consistent portion of cliffs at Azure Mountain. It features a few seldom-visited but generally high-quality rock and ice routes.
Once passing the Sidewalk Cafe Area(the first series of cliffs encountered above the climbers' trail), continue to contour around the mountain, reminding yourself not to gain elevation. Eventually you will come to the main face approached via a large talus field. If you go too high you can still get back down via some sketchy bushwhacking. To access the base of certain features some potentially sketchy slabs/steps may have to be negotiated so be careful... this isn't the kind of place you want to break an ankle.

P1: Once on the ledge climb the fingercrack and small crimps until the crack closes, transition into another fingercrack just above and to the right of the first. Gain a rest at the horizontal crack halfway up, then continue up the handcrack to the top. If it has rained recently, the bottom of the climb will be seeping and gaining the fingercrack will be a challenge, however, it is still feasible.
