Description 

This is the Impressive formation just south of the San rafeal river campground. It is home to some obscure but awesome routes.The North Face holds a couple classics, some of them products of the diabolical Mr. Pennings and friends.


Getting There 

From I-70 take ranch exit 129. Follw this dirt road north toward the buckhorn wash.Park at a turn off just south about 18 miles to a sign locating the peak on the west side of the road. It's only .8mi further to the blm campground with toilets, and tables.Follow a major wash west towards the base, and bust up through the Chinle.Easier than it looks.
