Description 

directly above Red Tail Lower. all the Red Tail walls seemed popular during my stay but i wouldnt say crowded. rock type is of course gneiss and the quality seemed good if not great. there are small rocks on the ledge (as ledges usually do) and you should be careful not to send them down as again Red Tail Lower is a popular spot.

Getting There 

can access this area by climbing a Red Tail Lower climb or by walking up far left side.
