It is right near sites 25 and 26 on the map. The spot itself is pretty shady. The Rhodey Loadies called this are Lost Town.

This area is a good spot for warming up or enjoying some quality easy to moderate bouldering. It was developed early on in the 1970s by Paul Baird and John MacLean (aka Whitey) who did probably every conceivable line, Paul everything under V1 and John filling in the rest. Looking over Paul's notes, everything is named rather prosaically, so we may as well come up with more fun ones than "Easy Crack".

Great warm up spot before hitting Lost Crag!

Although it says there are only 4 routes, that's a load of bologna. This is an awesome boulder and nice if you want to feel around and have some fun warm-up climbs!

You can probably milk out 10 or 12 problems on this wall especially if you don't mind eliminates. Fun wall, for sure.
