Description 

An easy-access wall with over a dozen quality routes. Great for a full day or even just an evening.

Getting There 

Park at the Reed Lakes Trailhead on Archangel Road, and follow it roughly two miles past a broken-down cabin and across Reed Creek. The trail heads up the steep side of this wall, so follow the switchbacks until you're above the level of the base, where you'll find a well-traveled trail heading straight to the wall. Routes along the right end of this wall may not have as easy access at the base as the first section of rock.

Anyone know anything about the crack that runs between Thin as ice and Snowflake? cleaned it out and gave it a burn, must be around 5.7 or something.
