A bit hidden but not too bad. About 300' facing south. I think Paul Ross did the first route here and George Hurley/ Kurt Winkler added more. Veteran's of Foreign Walls is good. Some crap rock but mostly good

Getting There 

From the end of Jericho Road, go up the obvious trail as far as the shelter. Now left up the Stairs Col trail for about 15 minutes. A hard right in to the woods, about 15-20 minutes will get you to the crag. Hard to see, I would not try to find this mid-summer.
