The tall, thin wall between the Madness and Shadow Buttresses. This crag has a handful of routes following face and crack features to the summit. Close to 200 feet tall, the buttress has a minimum of 2 pitches per line. Rock quality is good and consistent.

Getting There 

Drive past the main parking and bouldering area to a pullout just after the Quartermoon Buttress. Look for the thinner formation sandwiched between two larger buttresses, defined by two deep chimney clefts. Follow a light foot path to the base.
