Description

Hawk's Nest is found on the far west end of the East Rampart area. This formation contains some excellent routes like Charybdis and Happy Hunting Grounds. The formation sees less crowding than others on the East Rampart, but the climbs here are just as good.

Getting There

To get to the Hawk's Nest hike up the CCC Trail and follow the top of the East Rampart cliff until you reach the Leaning Tower. Descend the Leaning Tower Gully and turn right (west). Walk about 150 feet. When you reach a giant 20-ft high boulder you're there (routes Coronary and Angina ascend the rock above this boulder.
