Description 

The centerpiece of this area is a decent size cave formed by two very large boulders leaning against each other. Home to some good and great problems. Most of which are of a committing nature.

Getting There 

I will update directions when they actually take a consistent form. For now, just try to head toward the two big boulders with a tree growing out between them seen. You can see them by sitting on top the uvula and looking straight out toward the ocean. They're about 100 yards away from the Uvula.

As of yesterday, the trail to the Lair has been cleared. As you approach Ramps are Rad, there will be a branching trail the leads down to the right. Follow this as it weaves past several boulders down and eventually slightly left. It will dump you at the gigantic uphill boulder of the Lair. Go down into the hole, and The Maw will be the first climb you encounter.
