This massive rock on the north facing hillside above Rattlesnake Canyon resembles the lower portion of a ship and is easily visible from the parking area. There are two trad routes (with one or more bolts) that ascend quality rock for 85' and are worth the approach. The descent is a walkoff.
Head south up the Rattlesnake Canyon wash until it veers west. From this point hike up the steep slope to a ledge at the base of the north face. Some boulder hopping is required.
