Rhinoceros Rock Rock Climbing
Rhinoceros Rock is the slabby rock just to the west of the massive Outer Outlet. This rock sees few ascents, but it has a couple of fun cracks for beginners. The northwest face is highly broken up with cracks running diagonally up and to the right.
Fixed rappel anchors are located at the highest point, and go off the south side of the rock.
Follow the Outlets trail around to the northern edge of the area. From the meadow just north of the Outer Outlet, Rhinoceros Rock is just west (right), and is connected to Outer Outlet by a gigantic boulder that is cammed between the two.
