This is the strata of rock that lies just to the north of pear-shaped Pulpit Rock. It is a wide, slabby expanse of rock. It has ascending gullies just behind it from the east and from the west. At its shortest, it is less than a rope length just behind Pulpit Rock. At its tallest, it is over 60m tall. Its right side has seen a bit of sport climbing development on a near vertical bit of rock. Overall, its face consists of discontinuous cracks separated by a decent amount of slab.
From the McGraw Ranch / Cow Creek Canyon trailhead, hike to the east side of the barn and find the cairned trail to the base of Pulpit Rock. Once at its base, angle up and left.
This crag appears to be on Comanche Wilderness land, so power drills are not allowed. Also, they prefer camoflauged hangers.
