Description 

This secluded formation gets little traffic compared to the more popular areas to the south. Getting to it can be a slight hassle during the summer when the plant life and foliage is overgrown. There is a nice flat boulder in front of it a little ways that makes for a good spot to eat, hence the name. Compared to other formations in the Receding Ramparts though, the base of the cliff is clear and mostly grass.

Getting There 

Follow the paved trail north and keep going when it turns into a grass trail and pass the Mini Fortress area. Once past the Mini Fortress area, the Receding Ramparts will be on your left and is labeled with a sign. It's easiest to identify this formation by looking for the distinctive off width crack that can be seen from the trail (Prehension).

Climbing Season
