This small wall in the Rabbit Ears Massif area hosts a couple excellent short crack climbs. While probably not a destination itself, its close proximity to The Citadel and the Rabbit Ears Slabs make it worth a visit if you finish off a climb on one of those walls and want a few extra pitches of quality climbing. It is also right next to "the Keyhole", a distinct and interesting feature on the ridge above Rabbit Ears Slabs.
This wall is uphill and SW from The Citadel wand is pretty easy to pick out. It is a clean small wall with a few nice cracks streaking up it. Scramble and bushwhack directly up to the wall.
