This large, west facing formation lies in the southern end of Secret Valley; a north-south canyon lying northeast of Disneyland Dome and Southeast of Diarrhea Dome/Bighorn Matting Grotto. Other formations in Secret Valley include Elephant Arches and Hard Rock, both of which lie north of Inuaguron Dome.
The most straightforward approach is to walk out the Wonderland Valley from Uncle Willey's, continuing north past the Freak Brothers, Disneyland and Duckwaddle Domes. At a point approximately 400 yards north of Duckwaddle Dome, you should turn right (east) into a valley/wash [this is before the wash you turn into to reach Diarrhea Dome/Bighorn Mating Grotto]. Head east for about 350 yards (passing Gumby Dome). The terrain becomes more jumbled near the end; boulder hop over and down into Secret Valley. Elephant Arches will be to the left (north) and Inauguron Dome to the right (south).
