This is the East Face of Buzzard's Roost where the classic climbs Texas Crude and Fear of Flying can be found. Area offers shade and is often quiet due to length of approach, but worth the mellow hike.
Continue east (climber's right) for a good distance around the base of Buzzard's Roost past the Southeast Face found above Sandy Creek. Look for a slight climber trail that leads up the hill and meanders to the wall.
