Kid Rock is the massive 140' high slab which leans against the southwest corner of Saddle Rocks - Skirt . On the west face is The Kid (5.10a R), a somewhat committing route which sees limited traffic and is the original route on the formation while on the south face are The Renter (5.9) and The Landlord (5.10d), two seldom done but sunny routes which can be nice when it's cold.
To approach the west face head to the right side of Saddle Rocks - Skirt and then make an easy scramble up boulders to the base of The Kid.
