Description 

This area is directly across from Vector Rock. Look for the boulder that looks like a large partridge (you know, from the 12 days of Christmas). This formation can be seen from the parking lot at Split Rocks.

Getting There 

Park at Split Rock parking area and head out as for Tiger Rocks and Vector Rock. As you pass, these formations will be on your left. As you pass Vector Rock, Beak boulders will pretty much be staring you in the face. Getting to the routes can be difficult as you have to scramble up and behind the beak. It took me a while to figure out where the routes were and really have no way to explain it other than there was some tunneling involved.

Great area! There is a better approach rather than going up and over the hills by Split Rocks. As you are driving from Hidden Valley CG towards Split Rock, pass the road to Split Rocks. Look for the large partridge in the distance on the left. Park at a pullout on the left with an information sign about Yucca (a couple miles NE of the road to Split Rock). Head towards the Beak, eventually dropping into a sandy wash. Once you are closer to the Beak, start scrambling up and find the routes.
