Description 

Slightly left of the main south face of Campfire Crag and jutting out a bit more is this wall that although technically connected feels like a separate crag. The bulk of the climbs here are moderate cracks with challenging protection although one difficult face route exists here as well.

Getting There 

Approach as for Campfire Crag - South Face but continue heading west to reach this somewhat separate portion of Campfire Crag.
