To find Buzzard Ridge: Fomr the parking area mentioned above follow the old logging road up Edward Branch. Go straight through the field after the first crossing. Continue up Edward Branch crossing when necessary. At he first tributary on the right, cross Edward Branch and the tributary and hike up an old wash (might have been a road at one time) to the northeast. Just follow the crest of the ridge until you come to the wall. Fatal Vision is the shallow dihedral at the SW corner of the main cliff.
