The area just to the right, around the arete from the Oops Wall. Not climbed as often as other areas; no bolted anchors, no easy gear anchors. Two of the routes are over 5.10; the other two are 5.8-ish.

Getting There 

Leave upper parking lot from far end, walk through meadow and past stream, come to large clearing. See footpath straight ahead; follow path until it enters the woods, then angle off to the right - you're heading towards an alcove (giant dihedral) with a crevice at its apex and a large crack in the right wall. Cuckoo's Nest is the left wall of this dihedral.
