Description [Edit]

The original description was deleted upon request by the original contributor. The following may be upgraded:

This is a SW-facing, small crag with a handful of moderate lines on excellent Fountain Formation sandstone. It lies just WNW of Physical Crag. Typically, it is devoid of other folks due to the relatively-lengthy approach, short lines, but it can be worth the walk. It is probably no more than 100 foot tall. The crag is W of West Ridge, Shirttail, Rincon, Cadillac, the Veil, & Physical Crag.

Getting There [Edit]

This crag is most easily approached from the W end of Eldorado Canyon State Park. Park near the visitor center, hike up the Eldorado Canyon Trail. Pass the cutoff for Rincon, where the trail levels out. Continue W past Cadillac, The Veil, pass a burned area, and then near Physical Crag, wander up a faint path to this small but excellent crag. Expect an hour-ish for the approach.
