The Pup Tent is the little sibling, maybe red-headed step child, of the Fortress of Solitude. While diminutive in stature to the storied and illustrious Fortress of Solitude, the Pup Tent offers a high concentration of well-protected routes with a relatively short approach and a long climbing season. Facing south, this crag can be excellent on winter days as well as many days throughout the spring, summer and fall. The rock here tends to vary between quartzite, limestone, and sandstone.
Situated beneath the Fortress of Solitude, following the same approach before veering off to this little crag.
