For quality 5.9-5.10 face climbs on compact, vertical stone, the left side of Kids' Cliff is hard to beat. This crag is a bit of a journey to reach, but the lengthy trek greatly increases your chances of finding solitude during weekends and busy holidays. The wall is nestled in a shallow draw alongside the west face of Cave Hill and the proximity to that formation allows for a post-climb exploration of its unique slot caves if you're into that sort of thing. If not, Move rightward along Kids' Cliff to give your fingers a thorough drubbing on the crag's harder routes, worthwhile pitches that range from 5.11 to mid- 5.12!
Nether Land and Kids' Cliff both face due east and get blasted by morning sunshine. Kids' Cliff has a few trees at the base that provide some shade relief, but Nther Land does not.
From the south end of Evergreen Drive, hike around the yellow gate on the left and quickly turn right to hike around a second yellow gate. Watch for a trail that breaks left and dips down beside a small pond. Follow this trail (Brian's Canoe Trail) southward through a brushy canyon until it merges with a dirt road. Walk uphill to a four-way road intersection, turn left and continue uphill along the steep, loose Gas Line Road. As it bends left and levels out, watch for a trail on the right. Follow it steeply uphill to an intersection, turn right and hike along a flat track to reach the north end of Kids' Cliff in a couple of minutes - Nether Land is just beyond. These crags can also be reached via the Chatsworth approach, but it's considerably longer than coming from Evergreen Drive.
