This is the next main rock down the path from the observation tower, and it holds some easier climbing than the nearby Oberman's Rock. You will find some beginner climbs in the 5.3 - 5.7 range, and also a few other tougher climbs up to a 5.11a.
From the parking lot, head .3 miles up the plank trail to just below the lookout tower. Instead of going right up the finished stone path to the observation tower, continue along the trail to the south.
