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.

Getting There 

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.

Climbing Season

For the Mother's Buttress area.

Weather station 17.6 miles from here
