Description 

Shady and secluded.

Getting There 

From Prairie Walls walk north. Past a big sunny face (First Fortress, which used to be in shade but has recently had major tree work done) down a gully through some boulders. When the trail comes back to the wall pass between the wall and a boulder. The buttress downhill with a small block under the corner is the one.
