Description: More than 600 m long cliff with two discontinuances. Middle part of Gauja series.
In the central part there is picturesque overhang over Gauja River. Cliff is hard to access - it goes along Gauja river and it is complicated to reach the foot at few places where are sandbanks between the river and the cliff. There form 3 - 4 impressive icefalls during the winter.
