Shane is right, my suggestion, go with someone who has been there.I went on an epic adventure today.One and a half hours later I found the cliff. First I couldn't find the trail head then I decided to bush whack.....oops.I ended up 0.2 miles east of the cliff at the base of a small cliff with some potential. Here is were a normal man would give up but I said no way i came this far in the rain I might as well keep going.I found it,good thing I own a GPS.So the moral of this story is,go with someone who knows.
