Description 

The climbs are mostly on the east or west sides of the rock so depending on the time of the day you can chase the sun (or shade).
Watch out for weak spots on the granite and mud wasps nesting the the flakes. Also some of the less travelled areas here have poison ivy.

Getting There 

Right between the road and the lake. Just after Jones Bay, before the road to Northrup Point.
