Description 

As the name suggests this area is percet on a cold winter day. In the summer you have to be careful since the temps can easily reach 100+. This wall is one of the most devolped at vantage and is home to heaps of classic lines in a beautiful setting.

Getting There 

This area requires a bit of a hike. From the parking lot follow the trail to the top of the mesa. then continue towards the river along the ridge line. Follow the marked signs and you will find a decent gully.
