A good egg..not so tall, but with a few good lines, especially the overhanging prow Swamper V5..excellent rock quality. The landing is pretty rocky. You will want two pads if you have them or at least one big one and a good spot.

Getting There 

From the end of the cul de sac, take the white blazed trail for about 10 minutes. After the third stream there will be a rocky ridge line in front of you (If you continue on another few hundred feet on the white trail you come to the Long Wall) Break left off the white trail and pick up an unmarked one that runs along below the ridge (it becomes more defined as you go.) In two or three minutes the unmarked trail starts to climb the ridge. At this point keep an eye down to the left and you should see it about 100 feet away, between the ridge and a small swamp.
