The massive lower portion of Saddle Rocks, easily identified by it's slabby west face, is called The Skirt and is home to numerous quality routes from 5.5 to 5.13a on it's north, west and south faces with climbs as long as three pitches making it one of the few places in the Park to offer multi-pitch climbing.
Hike the signed access trail to the base of the rock and then head either left or right depending upon where your climb of choice is located.
