The smaller of the two crags at Bone. It contains a high concentration of moderate mixed routes on highly features schist. Many of the routes follow obvious crack systems and corners, though there are a few face routes, and one spectacular unfinished project (has been TR'd, but awaits a redpoint ascent) called "Chainsaw Reaction" that tackles a razor-sharp overhanging arete.

Follow aforementioned directions for Bone.
