One of the main climbing areas downstream of the main falls. This area is fed by small streams that produce reliable climbs. This is also the best area to rappel into the Gorge. Bring long slings and cordalettes for setting up top ropes. There are plenty of trees to use for anchors.
From the parking area head downstream along the rim of the Gorge less than a quarter of a mile. There is usually a trail broken from the kiosk along the rim of the Gorge to the tops of the climbs. Be aware of snowmobiles as there is an abandoned road that runs along the gorge that is also a snowmobile trail.
