The Alligator Lounge is the crag you see on the approach which sits behind the lower canyons to the left (North). Awesome stone is in this little spot. It is easily recognized by the bulbous cliff top.

Getting There 

As you stand looking at the Quarry Wall, around the left end, a hillside meanders up to the base of a steep, charred wall (from the Hayman Fire). Skirt just right past here and continue around and up to the base of a very overhanging wall. This area is The Lounge.
