Description

From the trailhead at the parking area, follow Cliffbrake (East Summit Trail) just across the bridge where you'll find the junction with Timber. Take a left on Timber and follow it up through open woods until you reach the bluffline. From here you run a bouldery path until you top out at the overlook. There are many good views along this bluff. To access the climbing area, keep running past the first overlook area until you see the trail dropping down through a notch in the bluff. Climbing can be found in either direction once you reach the base.
