Description 

This is a reorganizational entry to help allow other formations to be entered under Upper Blair. If you want to adopt this page, please contact me.

This is the largest of the crags in the Upper Blair area. It has a rather undignified name. It is the highest and northeast-most crag in the Upper Blair collection. It has the area classic, Spectreman and the eye-catching Mystery Blocks routes. Note, the pleasant Behind Blue Eyes is nearby perhaps 200 yards to the south.


Getting There 

From 705, go north to 707, then east on 707a, then quickly southeast on 707af. Take the left fork for the north face routes and the right fork for the south face routes.
