This formation lies across the canyon from The Citadel. Several routes are located on the south and west faces and are described in a topo published in an old Rock&Ice. The relatively easy approach and descent make it a good destination for a relaxing daytrip.
Approach via the Topp Hutt rd and the trail which leads into Rabbit Ears Canyon (see The Citadel for details). It is easy to spot the wall and the routes on the South Face from the approach trail. Once in the canyon, follow faint trails/bushwhack directly up to the face. Long pants are advisable. Expect 1-2hrs for the approach depending on how far along the Topp Hut rd you can drive.

A piton down low adjacent to a bee-infested tree points you int right direction. A good belay stance is found at the top of the Wizard. The second pitch traverses out right towards a lone 1/4" bolt.
