A steep, clean, alpine crag well worth the visit. When looking up at The Eaglet, from I93, this is the very smooth and steep looking face of rock just to the left. There are three routes up this intimidating face, the most moderate being "Salt Packed Pig Sack (5.8)," which is the center-most line. This crag has a remote and alpine feel, despite being only a 20 min hike from the highway.
Follow the approach as for The Eaglet. Once you reach the beginning of the talus, and the first cairn, look for a second trail of cairns that branches off left. Follow this steep trail into the gully just below the obvious Flatiron.
