The 4th class scramble to the top of Indian Point. I recommend best approach traversing on the left/west side and climbing it from the north side as the rock is more solid. Photo from steelheadgeocaching.org (2016-03-26). Photo by Austin D. Smith.

Atop this point sits an old roadside pit stop, called a roadhouse, "welcoming weary travelers with crisp linens, cold beverages, hearty meals, and fantastic views" (Latourell Falls roadside marker) built into this nice structure that was preserved to allow views (up and downstream) of the Columbia River Gorge (2016-07-09).
