This is a small cirque on Roaring Fork Mountain. It hosts one established route from Joe Kelsey's Wind River Mountains. Faces east with lots of sun. Rock quality ranges from excellent to very adventurous.
Access from Worthen Meadows and hike the Roaring Fork trail until a climbers trail merges after a few miles. The trail moves left at a meadow and is very obvious with blazes. Along the trail one will get views of the cirque and the buttress that is big, red and obvious. This is the Big Red Buttress.
