Are you refering to the cliff behind the power station in the Beaver's Bend area? If you are, you will get busted by the rangers for trespassing. I got caught rappelling from that one during the late 1980's and luckily he let me and my brother off with just a warning.

As far as the lake goes, I have water skied most of the lake and I don't recall anything that looked that good, but I didn't see all of the coastline though.

It isn't the wall behind Beaver's Bend. I have just been told of a cliff that people jump from that is slightly overhanging and around 60-70ft. I don't know if it is climbable rock though. Thanks for the reply!

I have done some cliff diving off of one of the islands in the lake. The rock is crap from what I remember. It is some kind of shale and it is brittle and razor sharp. My uncle cut his finger and had to stitch it up himself because he didn't want to leave to go to the doctor (healed up just fine though. He's tougher than I am--but that's a little off topic isn't it.
