A gorgeous jaw dropping formation. When I saw this I could not believe it. South facing nestled in among ancient trees, very shady. A little off the beaten path but a secluded climb due to its nature

Getting There 

From ranger station hike to the fork, bear right. As you arrive at the seasonal creek crossing look for the faint climbers trail behind the large boulder (to the west). Follow up hill for about 5 minutes keep your eyes peeled to the right, the formation is off the trail up the hill >1 minute.
