area. It's a large formation of good rock offering a few sport routes and a few mixed gear routes with most of the routes being in the 5.10 range. The fin faces north/south so the formation offers climbing on the west side as well as the east side so you can choose sun or shade.
From the CRSP Ranch House, follow the trails for the Comp Wall Slabs and take a trail that goes between the Wedding Bell and the north east end of the Comp Wall.
