The Sector Contravent is a good, sheltered buttress that looks out west from below the fire lookout. Follow the main track up hill then turn right and scramble up to the fire lookout (and ascent is mandatory). A small path leads left (west) from here and then make a steep descent to the foot of the cliff. The routes are generally steep and quite hard for their grade.
