This is a short granitic crag that faces Dude's Fishing Hole in Golden Gate Canyon SP. It has at least 9 routes on its southwest face. The route developers are Mark Rolofson, Kirk Miller, Ken Trout, Vaino Kodas, Ernie Moschovitz, and others. Some of the routes are a bit challenging, some are moderates.
