05/20/20 - Both light precipitation and that the cliffs are closed to climbing this time of year to protect raptors meant I had the area to myself. Basalt columns like this can also be found at Frenchman Coulee in Washington state; Devils Postpile in California; and Devils Tower in Wyoming. I am certain there are others; those are the ones off the top of my head. On my part I am far more interested in alpine climbing than rolling at the crags, so here I was more interested in catching a glimpse of some raptors, which I did not. The views were rewarding nevertheless.
