There are many such places. Edward Abbey

Doesn't look like too much from low down but once you get high up and onto the routes it's really quite something.

The trailheads from Kings Canyon to East Lake towards Ericcson Crags, Thunder Mountain, or North Guard Cirque are the equal of anything normally approached from Eastside.
My favorite spot on earth though, is surely Corsica, hands-down, beyond even remote compare: it fits the desired criteria to a T, and its beauty is almost unbelievable; you could spend a lifetime just looking at a single Chinese landscape-esque vista of the Bavella's colossal granite towers, clouds tearing through them, with the Tyrrhenian Sea far below and bathed in the scent of the maquis. It'll help if you speak Italian and carry a knife
