Description 

This is the long steep slab reachable by walking up the path left of the Height-of-Land Wall. The left side is bounded by a chossy right-facing corner (which separates it from the Blueberry Ledge area). To the right, a ledge system runs across most of the South Corner Cliffs, but this area's climbing follows a right-rising ramp.
The main face, on the left, is 200' tall, streaked vertically with dark brown and light orange. The dark rock is often wet.

Getting There 

Hike to the Height-of-Land Wall, then up along its left edge. Skirt the right edge of the Blueberry Ledges cliff to reach the base near its left end.
