This is the slanting butress on the very top of The Clifty Hill that is visible from north community in Los Alamos. It gets morning shade, afternoon sun and now resembles a wasteland due to fire aftermath. This portion of Clifty obviously got a lot hotter than Clifty proper. It is not really worth the visit unless you are bored and want to devolop your own opinion. Perhaps the routes are worth doing at least once. This use to be a lot nicer when it was lush and not so deserted. This is the same type of rock that is found all over upper Rendia Canyon. There are four bolted lines that exist on this wall. A long hike for not much climbing. It is very quiet and free of crowds.
Same as for Clifty but continue up The Clifty Quickie approach and gain the main ridge and continue to the top of the first spur. Then continue on the main ridge and head north and stay left of a few small rock croppings. once you pass these the crag will be visible. It has a slablike appearance.
