Description 

Two pointed formations 75 yard N/W of Kate's Crag and just behind the Frontier Wall. The stand out routes are Little Big Man (5.9) a short crack climb and The Schlong (5.11a) a steep, not-quite sport climb.

Getting There 

Follow the Frontier Wall approach, but look for these spires on the right just before the Frontier wall.
