This little wall faces mostly west and has a few decent short routes. Not a crag to rave about but you will most likely have the place to yourself even on a crowded day at The Palace. The quality of the rock varies with the harder routes on the left side being the best. The worst of the choss is encountered down low on the wall. The base of the wall is steep, loose, and right above The Chamber, so be careful not to send rocks down towards other climbers. For this reason, it's not a great spot to bring the dogs or clumsy people.
Kind of tricky. The best way is to start at The Poudre Face - from there continue up the trail heading north until the steepness eases and you pass a lone pine tree. Hike about another 30 yards further and look for a very faint trail marked with cairns that wanders up through some smaller broken cliffs to the west. The trail soon forks left (rather than right to the Lions Den) and reaches the top of the cliff band before heading back down to the south and into a gulley above The Chamber. Takes about 15 minutes or so. The crag sits right above The Chamber and can be approached from the base of The Red Wall, but it is not recommended as it requires scrambling up some looseness that could rumble all the way through The Chamber. If you go this way, be very careful.
