There is, however, a small campsite much lower on the trail, just a couple hundred metres from the tarn Lemon Lake. It has space for two tents, and the best part is that it is perched on a gigantic boulder beside a creek. Visitors are treated to an inspiring view of the tall thin waterfall tumbling off the cliffs. The falls plunge 213 m (700 ft.) from Cliff Lake, and hikers at the boulder camp can see the waterfalls from 300 m across an open brushy basin.
The route to Cliff Lake ascends the cliff-like slope beside the waterfalls. Climbing the route to the lake is an aerobic endeavour, with only bits of trail to guide hikers up the slope. Most of the route up the cliff is not marked. There are plenty of foot- and handholds, but it is still very steep and feels exposed in places. This is not a safe hike in wet weather. After an overnight rain, some sections of rock can be very slick.
