Like the name implies this diminitive crag holds a half-dozen or so pint-sized climbs from 5.3 to 5.10+ on decent quality rock and a better than average view owing to it's elevated base. The climbs are a bit new and should clean up with more traffic.

Getting There 

Park as for the Pixar Wall Area and wander up low-angled slabs to reach the base of the lower crag and then continue up and left via a bit of easy scrambling.

Climbing Season

For the Echo Rock Area area.
