Once outside of camp if a cat travels east they will soon spot a rocky outcrop jutting out of the landscape. A thin layer of grasses grows here and large boulders provide cover or launching points for those practicing their attacks. These will be useful as this is the new training area for apprentices and their mentors. Situated close to the Rainclan and Sandclan borders, it provides a good view of the surrounding land and is a relatively safe place for learning cats. There is also some prey in this area. Jackrabbits, shrews, and ground squirrels can all be found darting between the rocks while sparrows and ravens often search the ground for insects or seeds. Predators rarely visit but when they do the openness of this place does not allow for an easy escape. Aerial hunters such as hawks or eagles are the greatest threat. Overall this outcrop provides a nice area for apprentices to learn the skills of hunting and fighting that are necessary for becoming a warrior. ~ The Training Outcrop, Lilywolf <br> <br>
