The Knight from the west.
This is a the second largest crag of these small crags. It is just right/east of Chair Rock
. It has a half dozen routes or so. From a distance, it has a sort of slender, spire-like appearance. Up close, it is a bit less impressive.
Rap 120' off bolts to the SW. Eds. Note, from Allen Hill, there is a good crack route on this rock that someone who has done it should enter into the database.
From the fence line, hike 0.5 mi north, drop down to the rocks. Bear right to the right-most formation, just right of The Chair.
