Approach

Park at the Mel Deanna Hiking area just off Hwy 3 (Between Castlegar and Salmo) (49.24841, -117.63764).

Follow the trail south, going right at the first split (at the shelter). Just past a large boulder (on the right side of the trail) head right onto a side trial marked with cairns. Continue on this trail to the top of the cliff then head right to find a rebar ladder to access the bottom of the cliff.
