Hike north along the ridge from Cloudsplitter for about 30 min from the road. You'll find a short slab with some fun easy routes. L to R- 1) Southern Train 5.7 crack beginning from cave like feature at left end of ledge. 2) 5.1 Chimney in middle of face. 3) Hard Core 5.7X slab, next line right from chimney. Unprotected friction crux. 4) Soft Core 5.3X very unique water groove at right end of slab. Very fun. There are some other variations on the face between 3-4. Anchors are suspect due to fires and pine beetle damage.

What exactly is cloud splitter? And what routes are there? Seems to be missing from the guidebook.
