Gypsy Crag is on the main face Mt Everest. It is located to the right of a point directly uphill of the Ostrich Egg and also to the right of a huge, hollow scoop in the main face. (See photos on pages 66 and 71 for location.) The crag consists of two triangular, red faces that are approached by scrambling up a slab. The crag apparently has four routes, listed below from left to right, but further details are unavailable.
