The Villian's Lair or "The Lair" offers challenging lines that often require more technique than burl. It holds a sharp arete, a long shallow roof, and some massive mantles. It's an admiral part of the wall that should not be overlooked. Make sure to save some strength for this part of the wall!

Getting There 

Walk past the Acorn Boulder, Spy vs. Spy Area, and Hero Wall. Past the large roof, you'll see a large jutting block with it's sharp arete facing you. This arete is the start of Villian's Lair. The Lair runs from the arete to the left of the shallow roof, ending in the big choss pile.
