The upper cliff band is really an extension of the North Cliff Band of Cochiti Mesa. Its on the far left (north) end of Cochiti's North Cliffband. Routes here tend to be longer than most other routes on the North and South cliffbands.
Two approaches are possible. The most common is to continue NW along the base of the Cochiti Mesa North Cliffband, past OMS and Pickpocket, along a newly trimmed trail that ascends up and switches back just below the cliff.
