About Nadias Niche:

Description: As you enter Willow Springs from the loop road, there are a pair of obvious formations on the cliff to the west that mark Nadia's Niche. The first and southernmost is a large dihedral capped by a cool looking roof- this is the famous Nadia's Nine. The second, just to the right of it is a large blank looking face that sits above the pink cliffband.

Approach: Park in the first parking lot in Willow Springs and strike out on the trail that would lead you to Icebox Canyon. Take the left fork and follow the trail along until you are even with either formation listed above. Look for faint climbers trails leading up to the base of the cliff.
