A pillar on the east side of Miners Lake that forms up just like the Dryer Hose.  From the trail heading to Miners Falls go north down the hill onto the lake.  If frozen cross the lake, if not walk around the lake (very thick brush ), to the center of the east side of the lake.  Thick pine trees, unlike the rest of the cliffline, surround the falls so you cannot see the climb from across the lake or from the viewing platform at Miners Falls.
