This is a tiny crag which Armin spied from Sleeping Beauty. It seems to have a trail in the vicinity, but there seems to be little appearance of climbing activity. It's one we explored before work one day. The primary benefit may be its southern-ish exposure and warmth on a cool day. You may not find it worth the walk.
