The Crow's Nest appears to be a sniping post, most likely used by NCR riot control to keep coverage of the High Road. It may have been an office building at one point. It has since then collapsed on the far side, and the remaining ghoulified sniper camped there has either been killed or has died from other causes.
Located on the High Road. When starting at the beginning of the road and walking along, there are two collapsed buildings leaning over the highway. A warhead must be detonated in order to proceed. Facing from the start of the road on the left side are arrows pointing up toward some wreckage, which must be climbed to reach the Crow's Nest. There are multiple active satchel charges on the two bridges connecting the building that must be climbed, and the other. Take caution, as the satchel charges can blow the player character off the platform.
A Ralphie for the Feel Like a Kid Again challenge is on the back wall of the nest. However, there is an armed satchel charge which is difficult to disarm, near the center of the platform, hidden behind the lip of the concrete.
- Advanced riot gear - Found on the dead NCR riot control officer.
- Ulysses' logs: Y-17.16 - inside the top of the ruined buildings, next to a bedroll.
- Tumblers Today - In a box between the duffle bag and metal box. It is replaced by two magazines as of patch 126.96.36.1995, and a powder charge will sometimes scatter them a short ways.
Ulysses can be seen watching the player character when approaching for the first time.
