|Nice, mellow, featured slab with 4th class and easy 5th class options. Possible to scramble up gully, headed NW toward top, traverse south 20 feet, and set up a top rope anchor by slinging the large flake next to the pine tree. Nice place to take kids just starting climbing, assuming they are happy to hike in.|

The obvious rib is the easiest way to the top. If you want to introduces someone to 4th class scrambling, I couldn't think of a better place.
This is a fantastic place for kids. There are great places to set up TR anchors, the top is a true summit with great views and large hangout area, the staging area is right off the trail, and the bottom is a gentle grass filled gully, very safe. There are lots of options to set up a TR from 4th to maybe 5.5. I chose to belay from the top, but there are definitely opportunities to find half rope length ground belays.
There are some hazards for children. There are some cactus to watch out for and potential for poison ivy, there is a lot on the trail coming in.
Approach with 3 kids from age 7 to 9 was 30 minutes with 3 stops.
