After coming off the Tyrolean, indeed, head south...I thought it was more like 125 yds, rather than 200yds...but hey, Jason used to play football, so maybe his sense is better than mine! Just as you get south of the huge Mission Wall formation, you'll see a gully running back up and right (W/NW)--it has some talus right down the gut, but it's mostly vegetated. You can see M3 Crag clearly from the fisherman's trail beside the creek; it's not hidden or obscured by any other formation. There is a prominent (40ft high) ponderosa pine at the right edge of the formation--the tree sits just left of the gully. If you continue along the creek you'll come to a big cottonwood right on the bank, just before the river turns S and then SE--if you hit the cottonwood, you have gone too far. Turn around, look back up the hill to the NW and you're looking right at M3 Crag--it's the first chunk of rock you come to while hiking up the gully. Hope this helps.
Needs cleaning and be very careful working along the top--tons of loose rock, still flakes coming off while working routes. Could be a fun crag once cleaned.
Thanks, Jason, for getting it started!
