A small ridge and one tall wall on the south east side of the Cleo Amp. Down the gully 100ft from the "Tilted Tower". There's two great 5.8 cracks on the north side of the ridge.

This area is not named separately in Sven's book.

Getting There 

Go to Cleo's Needle and then traverse at the same elevation south for 100ft. You will be facing two 5.8 cracks (Routes 10 and 11 in Sven's book). On the other side is a tall face route.
