The Lounge is a 50 foot south-facing basalt cliff with a few loose sport climbs and some even chossier cracks. Almost never visited, and hence a great place for solitude, but only entertaining for an hour or two, at most.

The cliff was developed by Rick Smith and Lee Sheftel in the late 1980s.

Getting There 

Approach as for the New New Place. After you reach the New New, scramble straight down the scree filled gully for about 100 yards to locate the Lounge.
