Description

This is a cluster of rock below and slightly east of the Upper Measles Wall, consisting of an 80' low-angled slab, on top of which lies a steep, shorter outcrop. A discontinuous ledge system separates these two formations.
The lower slab makes an excellent first "long" climb, with routes in the 5.0 to 5.3 range. The upper wall is shorter, 20 to 40', with a (impossible?) cave-like overhang on its right flank.

Getting There

To reach the bottom of the slab, walk east, maintaining elevation, from the Lower Measles Wall, for about 100 yards.
To reach the steep cliff on top, walk down and east from the right end of the Upper Measles Wall

As mentioned, this is a perfect first-day-out beginning leader crag. There's two bolted lines that can be protected using only the bolts (other gear exists) and an easy trad line on the right side. Rock is clean (by Crane Mt standards) and friction properties great. Aug 19, 2013
