Knock On Rock
A bouldery start on crimpy holds makes this a really tough climb to get off the ground. Rumor is that a key hold has broken off, which might explain the laughably sandbagged 5.7 DCA rating.
Starting below an overhanging arete, claw your way up on thin holds to somewhat easier ground. Stick-clipping the first bolt is strongly recommended. If you can't make the bouldery start, the right face of the arete is a somewhat easier alternative. Follow the arete, then trend right to finish on the Walk By Me anchors.
Just past the trailside kiosk, starts left of Walk By Me.
Three bolts, bolted anchors (shared with Walk By Me). Some medium cams are recommended in addition to the bolts.

Climbed the arete using the small crimps on the right face. SUPER, SUPER run-out on way easy climbing. Stick clip is extremely suggested. There is a great possibility of decking if you don't clip right.
