The Cajun Cliff is only home to two sports routes, a 5.10d and 5.12a but it shouldn't be overlooked. The rock on the Cajun Cliff is solid, offering up small holds on vertical faces - classic Smith Rock climbing. It's clear that this area gets little traffic based on the lack of chalk on the rock.
The Cajun Cliff is located to the far left (west) side of the Monument Area and sits up above a rocky sloped hill, tucked away by itself fairly far from the rest of the Monument. Look for faint hiking trails that break off uphill not too long after walking under a big old ponderosa pine that offers up shade with a pine needle bed. Accessing the base of the area takes a bit of effort and rock hopping but is worth it.
