80' to 130' low-angle face/slab with ~ dozen established routes and variations, ranging from 5.4 to 5.10. Convenient to the hiking trail, easy on/off, easy TR set-up.
The routes here require skilful friction technique, and in most cases are very runout for leading, with the exception of Every Creature's Theme and Puzzle.

Getting There 

From the trailhead, hike directly up the summit trail for about 20 minutes. After the trail crosses an intermittent brook, a sign with an arrow pointing right indicates the trail goes up a short slab; take the path left here to a spacious ledge with a nice view. This is the top of the crag. A herd path leads down along skier's left side to the bottom, for those who want to lead routes.

Climbing Season
