A larger massif of summits a few hundred steps south of Layer Cake and just a few steps north of The Patio.

Getting There 

Either obtain a copy of The Needles of Rushmore by Busse and Burr or pray that a copy of Touch The Sky by Paul Piana is available on Ebay for less than a few hundred bucks. Or find a local who is really psyched to go to The Chessman. There are many who will spray beta for food.
