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.
