This is a rather large formation. Unlike many walls that face northeast (i.e. very little sun on winter mornings), the main wall on this rock faces mostly east, giving direct morning sun.

It is just west of the road, and just southeast of Left Hand of Darkness. Itís a few hundred yards past the turnoff to Lost Horse Ranger Station.
