A short compact basalt cliff with bouldery sport climbs and a few trad cracks. About 15 completed routes as of 2010. A good warm up for The Solar Asylum, as it gets the sun earlier and has easier/shorter routes. Climbable all winter, plenty of afternoon sunshine. Morning shade in summer.
This crag is located about 1/4 mile (10min walk) West of the Solar Asylum (see the many approaches for this crag on here on MP).This cliff can be seen above John's Wall to the East and can also be approached by scrambling up the left side of John's Wall and following a faint carined trail that diagonals up and East, about 10 min.
