This is a cluster of rock below and slightly east of the Upper Measles Wall, consisting of an 80' low-angled slab, on top of which lies a steep, shorter outcrop. A discontinuous ledge system separates these two formations.
The lower slab makes an excellent first "long" climb, with routes in the 5.0 to 5.3 range. The upper wall is shorter, 20 to 40', with a (impossible?) cave-like overhang on its right flank.

Getting There 

To reach the bottom of the slab, walk east, maintaining elevation, from the Lower Measles Wall, for about 100 yards.
To reach the steep cliff on top, walk down and east from the right end of the Upper Measles Wall

Climb on good lumps to the top of the slab. A short "headwall" at the top adds a few more feet of (5.4) climbing if desired, and another, harder (5.7) headwall lies above this.The climbing is easy, tho currently dirty, and there is no protection.This is a good never-ever climb, once it gets cleaned up....[more]   Browse More Classics in New York

As mentioned, this is a perfect first-day-out beginning leader crag. There's two bolted lines that can be protected using only the bolts (other gear exists) and an easy trad line on the right side. Rock is clean (by Crane Mt standards) and friction properties great.
