Climbing in the high alpine at the Penthouse.
This is a sweet little sport/mixed crag that is great for a quick pump or after work burn. It is a fairly short wall, but the rock quality is impeccable. It has a cool view, and nobody here makes this a desirable destination. This was the first crag developed at Middle Mountain.
Hike down ridgeline from car to uppermost cliff - 50' tall with obvious bolted routes and anchors. All anchors easily reached from top of cliff.
Weather station 1.1 miles from here

There is one more route between Stabbing the Cat and Shallow Hal. Four bolts. 5.9. This is another fun one. Really fun wall with excellent rock, belay stances and scenery.
