DescriptionA quiet crag in the woods, yet easy to find. Great views across the quarry and Roznos Meadow to the Wisconsin River. Among the notable climbs here are "Magic Mushroom" (5.12b/c), "Double Jeopardy" (5.9), and "The V" (5.10 offwidth).
Getting ThereThis one is easy to find from above, even if you have never been here! Hike up the CCC trail, and back into the woods behind D'Arcy's Buttress. Follow the East Bluff Woods trail east down to the saddle point, and continue up the Ice Age trail until it levels out on top of the bluff. On the right you will come to a rocky overlook, 20 yards off the trail. Head down into the woods to the left of this overlook, and within about 50 yards come out among the trees on top of Vulture Overlook. The best access to the base is probably back to the west along the edge of the boulder field (the Western Cwm boulder field).
You could also come up from below, passing by Crashing Rock, Lost Temple, and Red Nose Wall.
