Description 

This is the slabby, sunny (in the afternoon) face that can be seen from the car. Routes here range from 5.4 - 5.11a with most routes in the 5.8 and under range making this a good spot for some easier climbing.

Bee aware there has been an active beehive near the base of You Missed.

Getting There 

Park in a large paved turnout midway between Ryan Campground and Hall of Horrors/Saddle Rocks. A signed trail leads directly to Target Rock and takes about 5 minutes from the parking area.
