Jim on one of his climbs.
Only gets sun in the morning to about 12ish. Only a few routes here, but the quality of them is good. The rock here is featured and of good sorts.
Approach the same as for Lower Mother's
. Once you reach Lower Mother's take a right and hike up the hill. Best to stay close to the wall on a faded trail until it becomes to vegetated at which time you angle right.
