This is a sort of odd bit of rock--not because of the type of rock but just its location. This rock is on the South Rim, but unlike all other South Rim walls, it faces South and West (not East and North). There are a few trad lines, sport routes, but mostly topropes. It is worth a visit if you're in the area.
From the visitor center at the South entrance, park in the farthest North lot and take the farthest North trail leaving the parking lot (Lake Gulch Trail). Hike for about 0.25 miles until you're right below the rock. Find the least erosive way to the base of the rock.

Jam and stem your way up to some good ledges. The pro is decent but a little unnerving when you're making moves over a no. 2 RP in sandy rock.... Continue up the finger crack to a large ledge, then stem up a right-facing dihedral to the bolts....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
