The middle, west facing region of Raptor Ridge, this area is marked by the two hard sport climbs: Peregrin's Prey (11+) and Talon's Grip (12-). Two more moderate lines (5.8 sport and 5.9 mixed) are good warm ups and a wide crack rounds out the selection for this sub-area.

Getting There 

When the trail gets you to the Ridge, turn right and head uphill to the next buttress south of the west facing routes of The Roost Area.
