Description: Back country climbing in a spectacular location, yet without that much of a commitment. If your looking for a cliff that offers 5-6 pitch climbs with potential for new routes? They are still out there. According to Paul Cormier, there were no routes to his knowledge when he started climbing there in fall of 2008. Two routes are of world class quality. October Sundae (5.7), And the C.C. Arete 5.10 b.
Directions: Drive up the Success Pond Road for 5 miles and take a right on to another logging road that will take you toward the cliff. Park at where the culverts are removed. You can follow logging roads right to the bottom of the cliff. It's a fairly short walk, for a backcountry cliff.
