The Lair is the cave-like feature East of Ra and low on the hill-side. It is just across the tailings field, but it is distinct from the large buttress to the right. A long dead tree presently spans the opening to the cave itself. Four routes are presently on the crag. Bolts on two are visible from the trail. The right-most of these routes provides access to the adjacent buttress and the crags above.
Approach as for Ra and The Halidome. Cross the tailings field at its intersection with the trail. A rough short trail leads to the crag.
