DescriptionUp and to the right of the Darth Vadar Crag, there is another small cliff with a remarkable variety for its size. no 2 routes of the same grade. This and the shade of tall trees makes this a popular area for beginners and groups of climbers of different levels of ability. Routes range from vertical 5.4 to steep 5.11, and all of them are worth doing though none are truly classic.
This used to be a place to escape the crowds of the Meadows and 5.8 Crag, but the secret got out and it can be quite crowded on a busy day.
The rock quality on many of the moderate routes is not classic Rumney schist, you will find it smoother and easier on the hands.
