The Ariel: A cave-riddled, flat-topped sandstone formation at the center of Crystal Meadow. The cliffs leading up to the cloud-veiled summit are sheer and treacherous. Crumbling stone, patches of loose sand, and carnivorous insects only add to the danger. From about half way up on, climbers can hear the static gum of the TV trees above. They are just one of the strange and terrible things that await atop the mesa.
