Description 

Home of Pena Blancas lonely sport routes. There are also a handful of traditional routes. The rock tends to be the loose granite-like grey rock typical of the Garden area. Some of it is extremely loose and chossy, but a few cracks/faces are solid.

Getting There 

Located in the middle of The Garden with a fin of rock to its south and north. It stands alone and is easy to pick out because it connects to the easily recognizable El Diablo Spire wall just to its east.
