The name Red Tail is applied to the continuous sweep of rock starting above the north end of The Corridor and tapering out at the saddle where the composting toilet is located. You need to identify two major landmarks to make sense of the layout of Red Tail. The first is the wide crack of Conductress on the #19, extending top to bottom near the middle of this sweep of rock. South of this crack is Red Tail South. The second feature is Dead Hawk Rake. There are other prominent cracks on Upper Red Tail but Conductress is the one that starts where Dead Hawk Rake starts. In England a rake, in addition to other better known objects or people, is a diagonal ledge offering an easy way across the middle of a cliff. Dead Hawk runs northwards from the bottom of Conductress and so cuts the north half of Red Tail into Upper and Lower sectors. The carcasses of two young red-tailed hawks were found here on an early exploration. Foul play was suspected.
