Heart Rock is the first big conglomerate formation in the canyon, appearing on the north side of the road. The large overhanging arete that forms its south face is in the shape of a giant heart. Changing the Stripes ascends a major arete a stone's throw to the southwest of Heart Rock proper. This is an area that sees relatively little climbing traffic, but holds a few adventure climbing gems.
Park at a pullout on the north side of the road approximately 0.5 miles from the mouth of the canyon, and 200-300 yards below Anti-Gravity Rock.
