Getting There

Follow the trail up the hill from the parking lot. Wrinkled Rock is on the right, and Chopping Block is on the left. First encounter a steep bolted line called Tender Vittles, but continue uphill for the rest of the routes. Go around the corner to the left when possible and look for two faces with a large dihedral in between. This is where the bulk of the climbing is.
