Description 

The northernmost cliff in the Middle Crag - very enticing with a great variety of features. The main face is divided into right and left sides for this guide, and there is also a hidden sub-area of short cliffs on the NE side - the delightful Hideaway.

A couple of rattlers were seen on the big edge at the base of the South face - mid February of 2015 - so it is likely there is a den near by - be careful!

Getting There 

From the Lower Crag head up and east and turn left after crossing through the fence and climb to the top of the hill.
