Because this area is lower on the mountain, this area prone to remaining wet after a good rain. It's also one of the most shaded areas hear. To access the top you can use the 2ed to 4th class scrambles scattered about the length of the 600 foot long area.
Park on the right side of the road and walk the short distance to the base of the rock.
