Also called the Spud Wall or Cornerstone, the southwest face is the "golden goose" of Rabbit Rock. This crag has the goods! With over twice as many stars as there are routes, its almost impossible to leave this place sad. The lines here tend to be long, so be advised you may need double ropes, a 70 meter, or be on the watch for intermediate anchors.
Follow the trail from the parking lot towards the east side (right) of Parking Lot Rock. Look for the right fork that crosses the creek and breaks back left towards the base.
