Sitting just below the summit of Potter Mountain, this is one of the largest cliffs at Silver Lake. It contains some of the best multi-pitch face climbing in the northeast. The rock is some of the best in the park -- vertical acres of dimpled awesomeness, scoured clean by winter ice.
From the Goodrich Mills Trailhead, follow the logging road to a clearing, then bear 45 degrees right and continue on the logging road to the height of land (good view of the cliff here). Continue another 1 minute along the flat road, then look for a herd path on the left. Follow this (some cairns) to the cliff.
