Located in Circle Creek Basin, there are a couple of good routes here, along with one very good moderate 5.6/7 bolted climb. The walk into the rock is pleasant, and the remoteness guarantees privacy. The rock is west facing with plenty of shade trees at the base.
Park at the Circle Creek Overlook Trailhead and walk straight down the trail/road for about a mile. The road loops at the end with Stripe Rock sitting directly in front of you the whole way.
