Description 

This rock is a 45-foot freestanding pillar; the rock is excellent for the most part, and easy on the hands, smooth as a baby's ass. It offers great picture opportunities at sunrise and sunset; for the most part the rock is in the sun for most of the day so at least during the summer early morning and late afternoons are best.


Getting There 

Park at the last loop in Jumbo Rocks campground and hike south as for the approach to the east-facing Zebra Cliffs, aim yourself towards large hill to the east of the Zebra Cliffs. When you reach the base of the hill, hike around to the south side and the rock should come into view - it's a very obvious pillar of dark rock standing away from the hillside.

The climb starts off a ledge on the west face of the rock, goes straight up to the first bolt, then traverses right toward the arete clipping another bolt, then heads up again to the next bolt (this is the spicy part) clip two more bolts on the arete past easier climbing. The crux is one move, one very delicate move. Take care and have fun!...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
