Description 

There is not much here for the *serious* boulderer, but there is plenty of fun for the rest of us. The east side contains a big Flatiron-esque slab that's a popular easy toprope. The west side has a traverse that's good for foot work training and some moderates that scale to the top. The top is obviously popular with the partying crowd as there are usually some empty beer bottles up there.

The easiest way to get to the top is probably from the west side which is important to know if you want to set up the top rope or party up there.


Getting There 

Just before reaching the main parking area, this rock looms on the left side of the road. It's just passed the bike rack if you're starting from the South side main parking area.

This is a great place to start climbing. This was the rock my son starting climbing on when he was 4. It is easy to attach a top rope and start climbing (college students solo it all the time) .

It is like a mini Flatiron and is a good place for people to learn how to rappel. Best starter rock for little kids, they love it!

Thanks,Kevin

The east face is a great after- bouldering "solo" to de-pump or just for fun! The best downclimb will be found on the west side of the rock through a crevice with solid holds. Also, a great beginner top rope with plenty of anchor possibilities.
