Looking South on a hazy morning
This area is marked by the very striking sharp ridge on the left side of cannon. There are a few very good routes here the main event being the classic Whitney-Gillman Ridge and its many variations. at about 600' tall this is a smaller outing than those routes in the middle of Cannon Cliff.

NOTE: More details, and photos of the correct "Up-path", are given in the approach section for the Whitney Gilman climb itself.]
