A couple hundred yards down below the Aquarian Falls is where you will find the fine 60-foot cliff with three routes. The center one is called "The Mother Lode" (5.11b). To its right is the short "Chewy's Lookout"(5.10b). There is a TR to the left, "Green Bud" (5.10d) that is a bit dirty and less aesthetic than the other two.

Descent Options:

easy to reach anchors from above to TR and retrieve gear.
