A little, lonely slab down the hill from the Penis Rock. The rock is a little crumbly and there is only one bolted route, but I think it's worth checking out if you're looking for an easy sport climb. This makes a good tick for someone just starting their sport leading career.

Getting There 

Go to the Penis Rock area. Walk past all the climbs in the Gully area and keep walking down the gully a ways. The slab is the only obvious hunk of rock on the right side of the gully.

I have been recently told that my two new routes have been chopped. Whoever stole the hardware off the climbs, you are not just stealing from me but from the community as well.

Yep. I think the easy routes like to be overlooked. I'm aware of at least a few more routes that aren't on MP yet that I plan on climbing and posting.
