A little bird told me Randy was looking for some info on this one. Key's Point is the prominent formation visible from the Key's Corner parking lot, to the right and uphill from Outward Bound Slab, and almost directly east of Hidden Dome on the other side of the drainage. Northing 376820 +- Easting 57660 +- (from the Indian Cove 1972 topo). We named it for the view of Keys Ranch from the top. (It must have been the first thing he saw every morning.) From the survey lines on the topo, it appears that the restricted Keys Ranch area starts a few hundred yards south of this peak. All of the routes are on the side facing north, away from the ranch, and it would be wise to keep it that way. The south side of the rock didn't appear to have much potential anyway!
From the Key's Corner parking lot spot the highest appearing peak just right of the rest of the Outward Bound Slab/Hidden Dome complex. Go past the Financial Wall and up the largest drainage a little past the right end of the Outward Bound Slab. If you cross an old barbed wire fence you've gone to far south. The rock is on the right side at the top of the saddle.
