Pseudo Hawk's Nest can be found just to the west of the Leaning Tower Gully. The formation contains notable climbs like Bagatelle, Chicken Delight, and Full Moon Over Baraboo, along with other routes that are worth checking out. This area may also see less crowding than those east of the Leaning Tower Gully.
To find Pseudo Hawk's Nest hike up the CCC trail and hike up around D'Arcy's Buttress and head back to the west along the top of the East Rampart cliff. Once at the Leaning Tower, descend the Leaning Tower Gully. At the bottom of the gully turn right (west) and you're there.
