The crag is divided into four sections, from left to right (E to W) they are:
1. Shady Side Left,
3. Far Side Left,
4. Far Side Right.
Generally it needs to be at least 70-75F in Alamogordo for this crag to be comfortable.
Once safely accross, surmount a short stone wall and scramble up slick limestone for about 15 feet. Pick up a decent climber's trail on the left, and switchback up the hill for 2 minutes. The trail ends at the far left side of "Shady Side Left", so head right along an exposed, scree covered ledge. The first route encountered is "Pipsqueak".
