The Pit is an enclosed pit-type area just north of the Main Wall at Gallows Edge. Four bolted routes and a couple of crack climbs are found in The Pit. It also offers some nice circle traverse bouldering inside. Because it's enclosed it makes for a nice shady retreat in summer heat.
From the base of the Main Wall at Gallows, follow the faint trail north for about 100 yards. Look up and left for the bolted anchors of Gralisa Leen and The-Odor Takeda which can been seen from outside The Pit. The NE end of The Pit has a crawl-through entrance to get in. It's also possible to rappel or downclimb in from the south end of The Pit.
