A 30ft high wall located on the far side of St. Mary's Lake popular with cliff jumpers, it is also perfect for some decent deep water soloing. Rock is pretty vertical with lots of interesting features and is great for climbing. Approach is best done with a tube, swim, or jump off the cliff. Area is very crowded on weekends with casual hikers but no one climbs. As a bonus bring your skis and get some summer turns in on nearby St. Mary's glacier.

Getting There 

Exit I -70 at Fall River Road. Follow it until parking lot for St. Mary's Glacier. 1/2 mile hike to lake
