This crag is conveniently easy to get to from the Ragged Edges area, and hosts several moderate lines of good quality. Protection is mostly mixed.

From Ragged Edges, walk north along the base of the cliff and follow the best trail you can find that continues uphill and right. Soon you will arrive at a nice, large ledge at the base of the Case Face.
