Description 

Similar to the Main Crag, but slightly steeper and much better for leading. There are only two routes and a few variations that are not overgrown, but they're actually really good.

The most obvious feature here is "The Box", which is a shallow, 10-foot wide chimney-like feature. The Box (and some variations) and The Crack are the only two climbs here that are even remotely clean. The rest of this wall looks like mostly 5.5-5.7 slab climbing, but is dirty and vegetated.

Getting There 

From the Main Crag, head climber's left (north), and cross a small stream (which may be dry). Keep traversing along herd paths and you'll see a big, clean face to your right.

Featured Route For The Box

The Crack 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  Vermont : Lake Dunmore/Falls of Lana : The Box
Up the left-leaning, broken crack, then move right into another left-leaning crack/corner thingy. Follow this up to the top. The last section is surprisingly awkward and strenuous for the grade. You can build a nice anchor at the top on the right.This is a really fun climb with good rock. It's of similar quality, difficulty and length as Hush Mama Thrush at Lower West... maybe even a little better actually.(This is called "Route 5" in Tough Schist by Travis Peckham).
