Cay 3's northwest face.
This is a probably the second larget craglet with at least 10 easy to moderate routes. It is the middle of the obvious craglets here and lies basically east of the second pullout/campsite on the right.
Note, some use the pullout/campsite for target practice for .22, 9mm, and shotguns. The approach goes right past their target range.

Wander up fairly open forest keeping an eye out for a dome with a roof in its middle. It should be 15 minutes or less and probably 200 feet or less elevation gain from FR 217.

This is a good route that ascends a slab and then fires over the right side of the roof above. It can be done in 1 or 2 pitches. I suspect that P2 was placed after P1 was done.P1. There are 2 starts to this slab, the left side is harder, 5.7. Starting slightly right of the 1st bolts makes the pitch go at probably 5.6. Continue up very pleasant, clean rock to a 2 bolt anchor below the roof. Note, it's easy to miss the 5th bolt.P2. Step up and easily clip the bolt over the little roof.
