A nice, tall formation with quality rock and routes. The largest stone in its grouping and very near the road.
Located just uphill (west) from the Ten Pins and on the south side of the road.

The north side of the formation, the one facing the road, has a 1.5-2 foot deep, right-facing dihedral runing approximately 40 feet up its face.
